Faster Ram has no benifits. That is if you don't overclock. But faster ram will give you head room to overclock because it will be downgraded to pc3200 until you up your FSB. Now for 2gb compared to 1 it wouldn't matter until you played more graphic intesive games. Like I know BF2 and F.E.A.R. play alot better with 2 gigs.

There is a big difference in PC-3200 versus PC-2700 and below... at least that I noticed.... (pc-3200=3.2 Gigabits per second transfer rate, PC-2700=2.7Gbps)

Hmm I didn't even try to think of slower than stock ram.
