I have a list of different RAM from newegg.com, and I was wondering what everyone thinks the best one would be. (for gaming if that helps)

Here's the link:

Thanks in advance.

That motherboard supports dual channel RAM. If you are only going for 1GB of RAM, I would go for two 512MB modules.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I already have 512 and I'd rather buy a gig so I'd have 1.5gb...the more the merrier

Running in dual channel effectively doubles the speed of the RAM, I would suggest adding another 512MB module, this is a case where more may not be merrier. You will need to purchase a module that has the exact same specs and size to run in dual channel, the best option is to purchase another of the exact same modules from the manufacturer of the original module.
