Question about ram buffered or not

getting an ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ATX AMD Motherboard

I want about 4 gigs of ram. I was thinking crucial or corsair. Any recommendations on what to get. I don’t know much about ram Twinx, buffered, etc. If it helps it will be for video editing and gaming. Any suggestions or links would help.

Buy two of these and you’re done:
