That one just has diff timings^

Maybe I should pick up 3 sticks of something cheaper?

the timings arent different, the kit says 2.5-4-4-7 while the single stick says 2.5 744, that means 2.5 4 4 7 , its just the european way of saying it

get the kit and the single stick, voila , 1.5 gigs

OC Settings: 4800mhz 100x48, 1.4500 vcore, 1600mhz Mem 9-9-9-24, 1200/1600 GPU @ 1.26v.

then get a video card with 256Mb of memory. with a smaller framebuffer (128Mb) your gaming experience with BF2 will not be very enjoyable.

I just upgraded to this thing a few weeks ago...

Aww well. I think I'll get a whole new PC sometime, maybe next year. Pick up a midrange 7 series when they come out or a GTX or something after it gets cheaper.

Thanks for that info bigval. Just one more clarification:
What's the deal with mem modules having to be identical? Is that just if you want to use dual channel or is it necessary for all computers? I guess it doesn't matter if the modules are the same but with diff timings?

EDIT: Starting to wonder if I should buy a 2 gig kit...hell 1.5 gigs of that Geil stuff are gonna be bout $240 and I can get a 2 gig kit for that much...time to look around.

EDIT 2: Like this:

Too bad that stuff isn't DDR500, although that won't matter till I get a new proc.
