About the memory, if you use one 1gb stick and another 2gb stick won't you lose out on the benefits of Dual Channel (for overclocking etc.)

just wondering, why didn't you stay with the same brand of RAM?

Same thing as 2x1gb and 2x512mb, 3gb in dual channel.

^no actually, i was going to going to take the loss of dual channel, as my laptop only has 2 dimm slots, right now it has 2x512mb ddr2 667, so thats why i wanted to upgrade, but 3 gb, over 2gb dual channel would not be noticable anyway, so i decided on the 4gb, for i have dual channel.

i Picked up the order today. I had a total ball hooking everything up. The xigmatek rifle is way bigger then i had expected, it only has about and inch and a half clearance from the side window. The corsair dominator ram cooler looks awesome ad also works awesome. The cold cathodes are extremely bright. That 80mm fan i got pushes a lo of air. Since i got more zip ties i was able to do a very good job on wire management also. The mouse pad i got is huge and quite an improvement. I absolutely love the cyborg gaming keyboard, trust me, if u want a new keyboard, GET ONE. I played some farcry about an hour ago (played for an hour) it was pretty good, i have not played any of the fallouts yet though.There really isn't much to say about the rest of the stuff, the dvd drive is like a dvd drive lol. The laptop ram only shows up as 2.8 gigs sadly, so i wasted a lil money there, but i may get vista 64 soon so i could do a re install.

Sadly my order was messed up a bit. I got on switch when i paid for two (i gota call ncix tomorrow about it) i got 7 packs of zip ties instead of 10, and when i picked the heatsink for my mobo, i checked and the lock springs were in a different place then the heatsink i got from them, it does not fit. Im not sure if they will pay to ship it back to them and return my ten bucks or not though, but it's only ten bucks. Other then that the order was great, i'll post some pics if i have time later on of the stuff all hooked up.
