Default Which is Better to OC?

OCZ EL Platinum REV.2 (TCCD) PC3200 1GB 2X512MB DDR CL 2-2-2-5 184PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...anufacture=OCZ Technology

OR

OCZ EL Platinum PC3200 2GB 2X1GB DDR400 CL2-3-2-5 184PIN Pin Dual Channel Memory Kit /W Ramsink

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...anufacture=OCZ Technology

Which wouldnt bottleneck the system below when gaming but would give the best OCing?

The Rev2s will yield better overclocking result because 512MB modules have better latencies than 1GB modules

Obviously the 2GB set would probably do better in FEAR or BF2 though

side note - your signature is too big

Yes the Rev 2's would OC quite a bit better, however 2 gig is really nice for newer games

k thanks...

First... how large can the sigs be here?

Second which would you choose if you wanted to OC but could upgrade in about a month?

Also the 2gb with the Rev.2 RAM wouldnt it slow down the performance cause theres 4 in the slots?

I am getting the DFI Lanparty Ultra-D so i dont think theres nothing to worry about there....

So if you had a choice which one?

Could i still OC with the 2gb of RAM? but i could get more outta the Rev.2 right?
