Which exact model of SuperTalent SSD did you buy? Does the part number end with GFDL (good) or GHDL (bad)?
The brand of RAM doesn't matter, as long as it is a well-known name. The specs you want are laptop DDR2, 200-pin SODIMM, at least 533MHz (PC2-4200) (faster is ok but won't improve performance). newegg.com currently is offering a G.Skill model for $43.99 plus shipping - this is an ok price.

any DDR2 SODIMM (laptop memory chip) that runs at 533 MHz (DDR2-4200) or faster.
it will not run faster than 533mhz in the Mini 9 though

Thanks rrfranczak3, R2DMP, and eugene for your helpful responses!!
As you all said, I'll go ahead and try to find a good RAM for a good price. I was wondering if the upgrade would do any good because, I'm a programmer and was able to code pretty well with the stock ssd and 1 gb of ram that came with the mini. But with the combo I have right now, it seems that I am having a tough time with just browsing sites like youtube and such. I wonder how it would be when I try to code!

I still have the original SSD in my Mini 9 it's over two years old now,- maybe I've just been lucky I don't know, I'm certainly no computer expert. It's only 8gb, but I try and keep it 50% freed-up but putting most things on my SD card, (which I leave in permanently), and movies and data I don't need to access too often , on my HDD. I use it about 4 or 5 hours everyday, and I use a fan cooler always. I think The Mini 9 is brilliant, mine is very quick, and I love it to bits.

Since I got stuff I constantly need eugene, I'm finding it hard to put the files elsewhere to free up the drive. I know how you feel about it though, it's pretty awesome for such a tiny thing to be so cool!
I have a opinion related question for you guys...which brand would you pick for ram? Kingston or Crucial (<< those two are the only brand names I've heard alot...so I was thinking of going with one of them). If you guys have different brands that you like please let me know, but please explain why you like it! Would appreciate if you do the explainations!
Also, I found some for pretty cheap I guess, do these look right in terms of specs?
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB 667MHz PC2-5300 DDR2 Notebook Memory
Crucial 2GB 256Mx64PC2-5300 DDR2 200-Pin SODIMM Laptop Memory
Crucial Technology 2GB 200-pin SODIMM DDR2 PC2-6400 Memory Module
Kingston ValueRAM 2 GB 800MHz PC2-6400 DDR2 CL5 SODIMM Notebook Memory
Kingston ValueRAM 2 GB 667MHz PC2-5300 DDR2 SODIMM Memory
Crucial 2GB 204-PIN PC3-8500 SODIMM DDR3 Memory Module
Obviously depending on the specs, the prices were varying.
