Default need ram for a conroe build

ok well here's what i'm looking at getting right now. I'm gonna be using this for gaming and movies/music and probably 3d animation too. I will be OCing eventually. (i'm not sure if i'll do it right away or not)

CPU: Core 2 Duo E6300
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115005

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 Intel P965 Express ATX // 10/100/1000Mbs
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128012

PSU: Antec TruePower 2.0 TP-II 550 550W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103931

HDD: Western Digital Caviar SE16 250Gb w/ 16mb cache
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144701

GPU: eVga Geforce 7600GT
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130017

CASE: XCLIO case (with 2 120mm fans added on)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811103003

OS: Windows XP Professional 64-bit version

MONITOR: HannsG 19" 1440x900
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824254001

ram i'm looking at:

OCZ Gold Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 667
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227046

OCZ Platinum 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227089

If i get the first set (cheaper) then i'll probably upgrade to either a aftermarket HSF or a E6400. I don't know which. Also i might get Vista next summer but by then i'd upgrade to 2Gb if i don't get it now.

i can supply more info if you want too just ask. And if you think i should get other components too that's welcome as well. I'm already $50 over my planned budget so i'm not very willing to upgrade much but ideas are still welcome.

bump*

and also is it hard to manually set timings and speed in bios? this will be my first build...i'm not worried about the building process or anything. it's just that i've heard that for these OCZ kits you have to set timings and speeds in bios for them to work.
