Default Need Help with RAM

I am custom building my computer from scratch and the only thing giving me problems is my RAM....I have following:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.4GHz)
Gigabyte 965P-DQ6 MotherBoard
Nvidia 7900 GTX OC (512MB) PCI-E
320GB WD SATA HDD
2GB OCZ PC2 6400 (2x1024) Dual Channel ram

The problem I am having is the stupid ram....as I got all these parts last week and they are brand new, I am hoping that I didnt get any defective part....My HDD is new so I am trying to install XP on it and when my ram is in dual channel mode, the setup freezes in between and when I remove one ram and try again...it works....can someone plz guide me through......thanx

Make sure the RAM is placed in the right slot. Try putting the suspected bad RAM onto the motherboard and take out the good one to confirm if the RAM is defective.

You may also have to go into the motherboard's bios and make sure that dual channel mode is enabled.
