"Even" is and power of 2 - 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048...Brand names matter, Crucial is pretty popular. Also, you want PC3200 for your motherboard, other stuff will be too slow or wasted money on faster chips.
Yes, i see now. Though for some reason there is no Crucial RAM sold, mostly Kingston or Corsair.
My money isn't too huge, and the 7800GT card is probably outside my reach. Something costing half that would be ideal.
What is an odd number of RAM? 1,5 gigs would count as an odd number?
No. RAM has usually worked better when purchased in matched pairs, although that doesn't really apply anymore as the feature it enabled is now enabled by most single sticks of memory. Interleaving (I think) was enabled by having two banks of memory. Each stick of memory used to have a single bank, but almost all is now double banked. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong as I'm working from memory, not having built a computer for a few years.
