    I am considering getting one of the AK77-600 series baords, seems they
    can be found fairly cheap these days. That means I have to change my
    memory out. I don't want to get some no-name cheap DDR memory for this
    build. I have heard that it is best to get matched sets of sticks.
    What is meant by this exactly and what is your thoughts on this
    subject? I am going to stay away from Kingston, haven't been hearing
    much good things about thier sticks lately. I was considering Corsair
    or Mushkin, maybe Viking. Any recommendations? I to keep it reliable
    and fairly inexpensive if possible.

    Kingston Value Ram works well for me and is fairly inexpensive. I haven't
    had any problems with Kingston and I have 10 sticks of varying models of
    it in 5 different machines. Stay away if you will but it does have a
    lifetime warranty.

    I use Crucial and Mushkin in all my systems I build with no troubles.

    The AK77-600, based on VIA's KT600 chipset, does not support
    dual channel memory. It is not necessary to have a matched
    pair of DIMMs.

    I use Apacer PC3200 with my AK79G Max. Apacer memory is AFAIK owned by Acer
    as is AOpen. Don't have a problem. I don't OC either.

    And I concur with Phaetos, you don't need to purchase a set of matched RAM
    for the AK77-600 as the VIA chipset does not support dual channel.
