I need to order more memory, just installed Vista on my HP pavilion a710e and with 512MB or RAM it just isn't cutting it (60% used at any point in time just by Vista).

Here is the product information for my MOBO from HP. HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Motherboard Specifications, A7V8X-LA (Kelut)

My question is, what is the best type of RAM I can get that my mobo will support? I want to get 2 1GB sticks of decent-good RAM.

Thanks, in advance for the help!

Thank you for the link, I wasn't familiar with Crucial.

Since I'm cheap, can you tell me if this RAM is compatible? It appears to be so since it is "Market Grade - 2 GB Kit (2 x 1 GB) PC2700 / 333MHz DDR" but I'm only semi-computer literate.

It'll fit but no guarantee it'll work. It's pointless buying a kit because your computer doesn't support Dual-Channel technology, which is the reason kits are sold like that. Also that's slower memory. Plus its unbranded.
The Crucial stuff that I linked to is guaranteed to work or your money back, and its the faster memory as well. Basically computer memory you get what you pay for, pay peanuts and it usually dies sooner.
