RAM question.

I ordered my new RAM but it was the wrong kind. So I need to get another set for 1gig (dual channel). Now I am wondering what makes the expensive sticks better, and is a heatsink on the sticks really worth it? Cause I can get a pair of 512 stick for $64 or a pair of 512's for $200??? I am not a super hardcore gamer so I am not sure if the heatsink is needed or what.

4 slots=up to 8GB not 4, they have 2GB sticks now just in case you didn't know.
