I will recommend some "very good" RAM for you. The Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2-5400 TwinX from Corsair I think it will suit your needs quite well. It has a clock speed of 675MHz and can overclock fairly well. It has timings of 4-4-4-12 which should not worry you as Intel systems are not really bothered by their latency timings, they are more bothered by the pure speed

Its Nice to have an Intel boy talk sense here. Yes the Corsair XMS series is vvery nice ram and is good for overclocking..its also nice and fast memory so in games it will be impressive.

The PDP XBL and EP series "Patriot" DDR2 PC2-4300 to 5600 is the lowest latencey there is, I have it in one of my machines and I run 3-2-2-3 all day long. I ran 4-3-3-8 to get a 4.0xx overclock . A year ago no one heard of them now they are coming into there own. The PC2-5600 XBL kicks in every test that the others dared to match it in there respective class. Go to there site and compare there products for DDR2 www.pdp.com

I have the same RAM (only 512MB though) and it is quite good. Running it at 566Mhz right now on a 1:1 with 3-3-3-8 timings at 1.9v. Haven't tried to crank down the timings any further yet though. The benifit of buying faster RAM is that you can underclock it and bring the timings down.

I definatly recomend it, I have always used Corsair memory and have never been let down.

Corsair and ASUS get along really well, I have built 3 systems with ASUS boards and Corsair memory in the last 12 months.

The reason the board makes a difference is some lower end boards may not work with all brands and types of RAM. For those boards, you would want to follow the manufacture recomendations of the motherboard company closely. ASUS is one of the top manufactures out there, so you shouldn't have any trouble.
