Ok, I have 2 options here. Vote and respond if you would

Option A: This is the most cost effective way for me to get to 2GB. I already have 2x512MB sticks in my computer now. Just buy another set of AData DDR2 800 sticks and be done with it.

Option B: Buy a 2x1GB kit and replace the AData sticks I have in there currently. If you choose this option please suggest a good set of sticks I can throw in there that don't exceed 1.95v as I am limited to that with my motherboard.

Option B, then sell your current sticks.

I would go with this ram here.


GeIL Ultra 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
Normally $199 but with an $80 rebate

Of course option 2. Ram prices are so much lower now, it is the best way to go.
Try these:

And maybe save your other sticks for a in home server or something, which you can certainly build as you upgrade all of your other components.

Penicilyn - Unless I don't know something you do, my motherboard only supports up to DDR2 800.

Thats some killer RAM but it requires more voltage than his MB can supply.

Some good 2x1G contenders that fit the parameters and start @ about $80.

Your voltage restriction is hampering your options

DDR2 800 is the "Standard" but any MB that OCs will run the RAM at higher speeds.

Sorry was assuming the nForce500 could do the same voltage as my 570, it lets me do 1.45v

The G.Skill HZ DDR2 800 might not even work, I think they need 2.1v.

Agreed. 1.95v is the max

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll probably go with the GSkill as I know that stuff is overclockable.

I know it is. I wish my M2N-E mobo went higher than it does.

Good to know, thanks for the info. I was not aware of that. I thought it had to be a specific type or lower.
