mfr/model of both RAM sticks? BTW - Gigabyte boards aren't known for their great overclocking ability...Good luck!

How much OC are you looking at doing? If you're not looking at OCing too hard, then you'd probably be safe going with another stick of that Crucial pc3200. How much is that Kingmax?

the price of the Kingmax TSOP 184-Pin 512MB DDR PC-4000 - OEM is $79.00. I was on the newegg site and was looking at the Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200C2PT - OEM for $86.00 dollars and it has 158 votes, thinking it might be better to buy good overclocking memory than the pc4000 kingmax memory. the kingmax got a 45 votes. thinking maybe i should just go with the corsair memory. what do you think.

For OCing, stick with the PC3200, and use a divider if you have to. The perf change is almost 0.
I am using $40 sticks of samsung ram, and have them at 223 fsb, 2.5,3,3,8. They have the TCCC modules.
