Default DFI LANPARTY UT and XMS RAM help

Okay...I just got some really cool new parts for my system which include:

- DFI LANPARTY UT NF3 250Gb skt 754
- CORSAIR XMS 1GB TWINX1024-3200C2PT
- XFX PVT42KVDE3 Geforce 6800XT
- ZALMAN CNPS7000B-Cu

So...I'm having trouble running both of my corsair sticks on the system...

When I put in my brothers two 512 mb sticks, the system works fine, but if I put in my sticks, the screen won't show up. My brother's sticks are two non-identical 512 mb, one corsair value ram and one stick from an hp computer. Is there some sort of compatibility issue I missed here? Anyone have this motherboard and suffer the same problems?

What if I just get one stick of 1gb ram?
I mean, skt754 can't run in dual channel mode anyways right?
