There was an article on 2 gig (2x1gig) sticks on toms or anandtech... don't remember. Anyways, OCZ got best out of the box performance. But Corsair had the best overclockability.

I would get a pair of Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2 XMS if you are wanting 2 gigs in your systen ,Corsair over clocks pretty good ,but I have heard good things about OCZ,the best thing is to look for the ones that have the lowest latency,that way you have a better chance of overclocking the memory faster.

Frys Outpost had some good prices on Corsair CMX512-3200XL-V1.2 that has a latency2-2-2-5 for $84.99 and it overclocks great.

Ya .. but he is looking for 2 gigs. 4 sticks of 512mb would not be a good idea :p

I know he was looking for 2gigs but I seen that price for Corsair XMS3200XL v1.2 for $84.99 and that was the cheapest I have seen for the 512mb of 3200XL.

Well since you are getting that DFI board with the mad voltage try OCZ or Mushkin's DDR 500 that runs at 2-2-2 latency. It needs a good 3.2-3.5v to do it.
