    We are going to need a bit more information than just that. We also need to know what type of RAM you want (DDR2, DDR3, DDR, and the speed), the price range, the types of motherboards your PSU will be able to power (If it has an 8-pin connector or not), and anything else you want it to have (Firewire, HD Audio, brand preferences, specific northbridge/southbridge, etc.).

    Also if you are going to do some overclocking. Some motherboards (Intel boards specifically) do not like to overclock.

    i'm guessing that the second stick or RAM is DDR2 RAM.

    And by the seems of it, pick a mobo with 1333MHz support and post it here, we can check the rest =D
