Well i just about too order

250Gb Hitachi (IBM/HGST)Deskstar 7K250 (7200rpm,8M) - SATA
256Mb Connect3D PCI-E Radeon X800XT (GDDR3, D-sub, DVI
AMD Athlon 64 4000 32/64Bit CPU S939 Clawhammer Retail inc Heat Sink Fan & 3 Years Warranty

what would be best memory for that?

I think it depends quite a lot on your budget, and if you're going to overclock your system in the near future. For both factors though, I'd really recommend crucial's 'ballistix' series of ram, but another worth looking for are crucial's 'twinx' series as well. Those two are generally recommend due to their stability, but they can be costly.

Define 'Cynical'
Check your motherboard manual for recomended types of ram. While Corsair's typically quality, I know of a few boards that won't work with it.
