Not really bothered abot overclocking, just playing games.

Corsair Memory TWINX1024 - 3200C2PRO XMS4000 2x512MB CL2 TwinX PRO
Or
Corsair Memory TWINX2048 - 3200C2PT XMS3200 2x1GB 2x184DIMM CAS2

Cheers.

Take the 2x1gigabyte. In most newer games, 1 gig just isn't enough for smooth gameplay on Max.

2gb would be better.... but there are many better choices than the Corsair RAM you choose.

Well im from the UK, so not really that much use to you i guess.

I'm looking at PC3200, DDR SDRAM, Non-ECC, Unbuffered and probably CL2 is probably my only option, since it'll be the best.

I would get 1gb stuff if it's better than 2gb stuff, and then get another 1gb later.

Probably looking around the £100 mark

I would be looking at obtaining a nf2 ULTRA 400 based motherboard first and then some good 2 x 512Mb modules for that setup.

2 x 1024Mb would not be utilised fully on your present configuration.
I find some links for you on motherboard and RAM.

How many £'s do you wish too part with again ?

cheers

edit : for some 2 x 512Mb RAM..here..and for a nf2 ULTRA400 motherboard..here.
That is pretty much around your indicated budget and will give you a large increase in performance.

cheers

Can't really go wrong with G.Skill: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/G_Skill.html The ZX is either £150 for 2GB or £70 for 1GB and is good quality.

Sorry for that I thought it was for the socketA. I should have read more carefully...
