"Decent RAM" does *not* cut it--you need *good* RAM from a good vendor.

Be aware that this recommendation is not complete without the caveat
that Cisco will not support your processor card if you stick
unapproved third-party RAM in it.  It's very important to use QUALITY
memory in the box.

With that said, Cisco does have an AVL (authorized vendor list) for
third-party memory.  Kingston carries this, and will even cross-ref
the Cisco part numbers for you.
