Looking for compatible RAM upgrade

Hey everyone, when my computer was first made I started out with 2 1GB sticks, and I'm just looking to put in more memory since my motherboard can support it. I'm just uncertain what is compatible and what brands I should look out for. I mostly use this computer for gaming.

Here are some specs

Motherboard: MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Video Card: GeForce 9600GT
Power Supply: Mushkin Enhanced 550200 550W
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo


Not sure if all that info was needed, but it would be nice if anyone could point me in the right direction. I don't need anything too fancy.

Thank You

    It can use up to 4 2GB modules (for a total of 8GB max) of up to 800Mhz DDR2 RAM.

    G.Skill, Corsair, Crucial, and Kingston are some good brands to look for.

    This is expensive (as is ALL DDR2 RAM at this point), but this is just an example. G.SKILL 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Quad Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5Q-8GBPQ

    Of course you don't have to max it out, you can just go for a 2x2GB kit as well. Something like this. G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBNT
