I use Crucial or Kingston ram.

But for older hard to find ram, try 18004memory.

Always use matched sticks in pairs.

Horse Manure. Unbalanced RAM works just fine. 3GB is a helluva lot better than 2GB. As is 12GB vs 8GB. You make do with what you can afford. Sheesh!

I had a dual channel capable motherboard with mixed 1 and 2GB RAM. I used what I had and it worked reliably, although the full potential of matched, dual channel RAM might not have been realized. In recycling hardware, I've found things generally work fine. If funds permit, sure, maximize the RAM available by the specs if this is important.
