    Well, what motherboard are you running? Depending on the motherboard (DFI nF4 Ultra for example) the best choice in RAM would differ. The rest of your system specs would be good too, maybe you can post them in your signature aswell, then you wont get asked this question as much :) thanks.

    Yes, they do make 2 gig sticks. But for tweaking, 512 sticks are still far superior.

    2x1GB Platnium Sticks(with the lowest timings if you can afford them) if your Gaming and not Overclocking that much, or keeping your RAM at 200MHz.

    If your not gaming at all you'll be alright at 2x512MB, but if you are then 2x1GB is the way to go.

    If yout overclocking get some 2x1GB PC3700/4000 Platnium/Gold/whatever.

    I take it that you have a dual channel memory mainboard by your post so, yes, if you're an advid gamer/multi-tasker/ realtime video editor then get 2x1GB sticks (2GB/4GB sticks atm so far as I know are only meant for servers and highend workstations and are buffer/registered/ECC) but for anything less then 2x256MB though I can't be certain as you've given no spec's (why not atm just put those in your sig seeing as you're asking so many Q's).

    My 2x1 gig OCZ platinum would run @ 2-2-2-5 ~215 FSB which is not too bad considering they are ~$200. With my new 4400 X2 processor(that can OC better than my 3800+) I must run a divider with my FSB@245. However, they are stable @3.0V with the same timings and a moderate divider.

    I would love 2gigs of RAM that could run 245@ those timings...I guess I'll just have to wait!

    As long as your not running a DFI lanboy OCZ rocks the gamers world and with a 939 skt PCIeX Soltek my dual 2x512 Platinum rev 2 kicks serious ass at 2-2-2-5 @ 200mhz PCI/280fsb 400DDR better than at anything clocked as high as 640DDR........but 2gig is extra drool!

    Uhh... A DFI Lanparty is preferable if you're going to be using any sort of OCing RAM. If not, it's still fine. I don't know if you're basing this statement off of AMD_lover's problems or an earlier K7 board.
