Happy Corsair XMS Compatibility with ASUS K8V Deluxe

Hey fellas, I'm building a new PC with the following specs:

Mobo: Asus K8V Deluxe
Processor: Athlon 64 3200+
Video Card: ATi X800Pro
Powersupply: Thermaltake Purepower 480w
HDD: WD Raptor 10,000 SATA 36GB
HDD: WB Caviar 7,200 SATA 160GB

I'm about to order everything in, and I would appreciate if you guys could tell me which of the following types of XMS Corsair memory would best suit this system.
Price isn't an issue, although I did find the PC-4000 to be cheaper. Is this normal? I was under the impression that PC-4000 XMS was generally a better stick of RAM and so would be priced higher?

Here are the Corsair RAM descriptions copy and pasted from my supplier:

PC-3200 1024MB Corsair TwinX Pro 184-pin CAS 2 (2x 512MB sticks) 400mhz

PC-4000 1024MB Corsair TwinX Pro 184-pin (2x 512MB sticks) 500mhz

I'm open to suggestions for a different type of Corsair RAM to be placed into this system as well.
And has anyone heard of any hardware conflicts between the above?

*EDIT* This PC will be predominately used as a gaming system, but I also plan to watch high quality DivX movies and burn DVD's. As a priority, I'm after RAM which will deliver the best performance gaming wise, I wouldn't mind if encoding movies / burning DVD's took a little longer as a result.*EDIT*

Many many thanks!

I would suggest Twinx1024-3200LL Pro with this MB and use slots 1-3 and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and set the timings manually!
