Default memory question

hey guys, im new here

i plan to build a $2,000 gaming rig here, and im having trouble deciding on the ram

im going with
7800gt from evga
amd 4000
abit an8 nf4 ultra (although considering DFI)

after reading a few issues here, there are a few manufactures im interesting in
(btw im getting 2gb (2 1gb sticks)) and im planning to do some overclocking

im currently mostly interested in Mushkin, but im considering looking at corsair, ocz and crucial

im just looking for other opinions (budget can be a little over $300)


and question #2, im hearing that 2gb (2x1gb stick) of ram does not perform as well as just 1gb, im not too sure cause im hearing mixed opinions

thanks guys














ps: instead of making another thread, im looking into 19inch LCDs...was wondering if anyone has the VP930b

LCD - You can get cheaper on newegg.com . Make sure you buy a monitor with a response time equal to or less that 12.

apparently the VP930b has a 8ms gray to gray, Newegg just dropped their price from $470 on that monitor, and zipzoomfly has it for the same price...difference is zipzoomfly doesnt have tax or shipping on most of their products

I am the power supply god, Noone should have a crappy PSU power thier system. or a TT one for that matter.

Having a bad Power supply is like having a bad Heart.
