Sigh.. The right memory for this setup? Help

System specs:

3.4 P4EE with MCW-478-UHT Waterblock and 226W peltier
Radeon 9800XT 256MB DDR With MCW50-T Water block and 80W peltier
Meanwell 320W Peltier power supply
465W Enermax system power supply
Abit IC7-MAX3 motherboard.
2XWD Raptors 740 74gb, 8MB,10,000rpm, SATA Setup in raid-0
Lite-On DVD Drive 16X DVD, 48X Read
Plextor DVD ReWriter (PX-708A)
SoundBlaster Audigy 2ZS Platinum Pro 7.1 External
Lian Li PC71 Case with a Large Rad and 2 120MM cooling fans.

As you can see there was no expense spared here, I want to use this
setup for extreme overclocking and hardcaore gaming. Mostly for games
like Far-Cry and the up and comming Doom3.
I checked your ram guide but it recommended pc-4400, I was looking
at getting your TwinX-4000pro series 1024 kit, what would you suggest
for my setup? Also I learned that doom3 will need 2GB of memory to run
it's best, How is this going to work on duel channel boards?

Welcome to the forums, Holley!

If you're going to be going for extreme OC's, then definately get some PC4000 or PC4400 DDR memory, such kits as:

TwinX1024-4000PRO

TwinX1024-4400 (No PRO model yet)

Unfortunately, there's not yet a 2048 kit for anything above PC3200 (TwinX2048-3200).

If you're still sure you want 2Gb of memory, you can buy two matched sets and run four modules, but it might limit the amount of overclocking you can do before you start to become unstable.

As for those requirements, I believe they are:

Minimum:
CPU: 800 MHZ - 1 GHZ
GeForce 3 TI/ATi 9600 Pro
RAM: 256 MB RAM

Standard:
CPU: 1.7GHZ-2GHZ
GeForce 4 TI 4400/4600/ATi 9700/Pro
RAM: 512 MB RAM

Optimal:
CPU: 2.5 GHZ - 2.8 GHZ
GeForce 5800FX/5900FX/ATi 9800 Pro
RAM: 768-1024 MB RAM .
