Thread Starter 
I want to replace my RAM with http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820146890 And would like to get two sets so I can have the 2 gig to play games. will 2 sets OC as well as 1 set or is there any difference? And what about 1 set of 2x 1 gig? Last, those of you with my board and have this RAM, How well does it preform?

you would be better off if you got 2x1GB instead then later you can get another 2x1GB and have a total of 4GB

Yes, OCZ Platinum will run great on your board. I just sold my old 2x512Mb set of OCZ Platinum Rev.2, pushed it to 282Mhz @ 2.85v

My recommendation for you however, would be to get this 2Gb kit. AMDs memory controller doesn't like to have 4 memory sticks running, so 2x1Gb would be a better option

OCZ Gold DDR500, i just bought this stuff, it's awesome! (stock speed is 250Mhz, should go a bit higher)

This stuff works well. I got mine to almost 280MHz but never got to push it higher due to what Tobuk said. I switched to OCZ Gold PC4000 2GB kit. I sold my OCZ Plat R.2 to a friend that already has 1GB kit and he is running both at PC3200 BUT he has no overclock and is not going to so it works for him.

My intel board runs full slots fine at 4205--4 X 512 works great for me. I just learned from Tobuk that the AMD mobos like 2 sticks better than 4--got it?
