In general, the 256mb stix are single sided (SS) and the 512mb stix are double sided (DS). Both are good but DS is better. It will perform better. For the CPU you have picked, I'd choose in order the PC3500, 3200LL, and 3200C2. Good luck, Mike.

[QUOTE][i]Originally posted by Scott_VeXen [/i] [B]It's usually better to install less modules for better performance. However, I'd just go by what it says in your motherboard's QVL (Qualified Vendor List). The QVL says, for Corsair, 256MB or 512MB modules PC-3500C2. [/B][/QUOTE] That really isn't true... as seen [URL=http://www.anandtech.com/memory/showdoc.html?i=1839&p=5]here[/URL]... but with that said, the performance isn't noticable. Asus's list should be taken with a grain of salt... I've gotten four sticks of PC3500 running at 2/2/2/5 and 220Mhz *and* four sticks of PC4000 running flawlessly at 235Mhz.

The thing you really need to remember with QVL lists, is most MB makers will not qualify an over clocked part or piece of hardware, one that's not JEDEC compliant. And you will not see any module DDR400 that’s Cass 2 listed as JEDEC complaint. Honestly we would not send any MB make our over clocked modules unless they asked for them. Most of our customers do not want a part made to JEDEC Spec they want a module that will run at what we say it will run at. So we havent put too much into that. But if you want a JEDEC compliant part the part # for DDR400 would be, CM64SD512-3200 Cass 3-4-4-8. That would be built to JEDEC Spec. Ram Guy

John, If you do not plan on over clocking I would go for the module I gave you. Or if you want a little more performance then I would go for our Twinx1024-3200LL or Twinx512-3200LL. If you do plan on over clocking I would suggest our Twinx512-4000 or Twinx1024-4000. They just scream on that MB. Ram Guy

I would go for Twinx512-3200LL as they would be the best choice for perormance and price. But if you can or are even thinking of 2 XMS3500C2 modules I would go for [URL=http://www.googlegear.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=85009-14]Twinx512-4000 For $202.00[/URL] especially if you want to over clock.

Welcome to the HoH. The PC3200LL RAM is a lower latency RAM than the PC3200C2. It will run tighter RAM timings than the PC3200C2. I would definitely suggest the PC3200LL for the P4C800 E MOBO.
