personally, i'd prefer the 1gb, because even tho theres less, its faster, so things will run faster in gebneral, how often is your pc gonna need '2gb'..NOT often, so i'd def. go for the 1gb fast memory.

Gigabyte GA-7S748-L: AMD Sempron 2800+ 2.0ghz
Viking 512mb PC3200 DDR RAM
Maxtor Plus 80gb 7200rpm
Ati Radeon 9600xt 256mb

But, I think he meant like PC2700 or PC3200 or PC4000 as your motherboard has to support the type you pick.

Yeah thats it a 64bit procesor with 2gb ram would work with longhorn when it comes out. Thats what i meant.

I would get the 2GB kit but they can't get it yet... As it is they are going to lend me a graphics card for 2 weeks until the GF7800 arives here in Australia.

Here is a question... I can always add another GB in the future as it is a 4GB board... (4 x 512 )
Will it use the Dual channel RAM first and then use the single channel if needed. Or does it all fall back to single channel mode when all slots are used ?
