From a performance point of view (especially if you're into gaming or running memory intensive apps), I'd recommend buying two X GB memory modules (where X = 1,2 etc) so that you can run them in Dual-Channel configuration.

On the other hand, if you're planning to buy another 2GB in the near future, then I'd recommend buying a 2GB rightaway.

Should I look for brand named stuff like Corsair and Kingston? Or Doesnt matter? Cause if it doesnt matter I'll buy this: http://www.techmaster.co.nz/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=347  or this http://www.acetech.co.nz/shop/product_info.php?products_id=13776 and if brand name does matter ill get this http://c1com.co.nz/shop/product.php?number=16705

What one should I get? And are they all the same specs?? They are all 200 pin and 800 mhz..

On an average, Kingston, Crucial and Corsair are quite good. Transend isn't that great. If you're looking for performance, I wouldn't suggest going for any sub-brands with the word "value" in them. From personal experience, I had to get my 'value' modules changed every couple of years. Of course, your mileage might vary, but you can't go wrong with Tier 1 brands such as Kingston and Crucial.
