I'd probably go with the first one, due to the fact you can run higher voltages into it to increase stability. Either of them should do fine for you though.

Also, What would you rather have? This first G.Skill ram you showed me with 4-512mb? Or the 4gb sticks? What would be best for OCing? Thanks for all your help. -Micah

Um...4 gigabytes is a terrible waste of money. No application would come near using that much memory unless you're a 3D renderer or video editor. Windows won't even recognize any RAM configuration over 2.5 gigabytes, so it's a waste. 2 gigabytes is the max that you'll need right now.

To be honest with you unless you are doing some serious video editing or CAD apps, I don't really see the purpose of having more than 2GB of RAM. But it is your money so I just throw in my 2 cents in on it.

Since you'll be running an AMD I'd go with the 2GB sticks to keep the system at a 1T command rate. The latencies of GB sticks are getting tighter so the main factor that should be weighing on your mind is how many sticks do you actually want to run.
