Quick question

I've got a 1GB Duel Channel set of Kingston KVR400AK2/1GR. What what I get if I add it to my computer? Can I get any increase in speed along with the OCZ?

The more RAM the better. But seriously I dont think you'll need anything over 2GB of RAM.

Scratch that, I'm an idiot.

I've heard AMD systems don't like to have all four slots filled. Also, the timings of the platinum set are likely to be better than the Kingston. That might give trouble. And 2GB is enough for now indeed.

If that cpu is Rev. 6 they handle all four dimm slots being filled better then say the Rev. 4. If you have Rev. 4 then you will have little success overclocking your computer without an aggressive divider, and it would be a waste of money. Like others said 2GB is more than sufficient, that is until Vista comes out. (Supposed to run effectively on 512MB of memory btw) A lot of rumors floating around about that.
