PC2-6400 will be more than enough for a Q6600 that won't be running over 3.6ghz. You won't notice the difference between PC2-6400 and PC2-8500 at that speed.

Either two sets of this or this.

Or a set of this.

I have the 4*2 OCZ kit, it works great. Note that the price fluctuates between 99 inc to it's current high of 117... I got mine at the lowest by waiting a couple of weeks...
