2 gig sets generally don't overclock as well as 1 gig sets, 2 gig sets have really improved recently. But with the DDR500 you are guaranteed to get close to your desired speed at stock timings, where as a 68mhz overclock on a 2gig ram set may prove to be difficult.

there's a set of OCZ memory at newegg that is like $235 plus a rebate. DDR500 speeds default...that's what I would buy. Reviews have it running in the 280's...save yourself some cash

thanks ! that's the 3rd choice i was thinking about , they say that this gold version of ocz overclocks better than the new one (ocz gold gx ddr500) and is like $140 bucks less than the platinum.
