    ok so i wanna get dual channel ram and my mobo says max 2gb's of dual channel 2 dimm's so that would mean i would have to get 2 sticks each 1024mb. i havent seen those around all i see is 512 max. i would prefer ocz. but other brands would be alright. so how do i get the 2gb dual channel ram?

    Make sure that it will run in dual cahnnel mode. Some MBs have an issue with too much signal loading depending on how many chips are on the DIMM (single or dual sided).

    The price difference won't matter unless your dad is into smuggling which carries a Federal Jail time sentence, the import duties may screw any price advantage. Besides the only place prices are lower than the US are in south east asia.

    You're not gonna see much (if any) of a performance increase with AMD. If I were you, I'd just buy 3x512 and save some $
