Im planning to get a Sandy Bridge 2400 now. And currently I dont have the money to get 4GB DDR3 RAM. My question is will 2GB of Ram work on a Sandy Bridge motherboard if it matches the speed on the motherboard?

Isn't it under $50 for 2gb of DDR3 these days?

Just try to get a 2gb chip and then you can get a matching one later on. It will be fine for a while.
