My system is for gaming /DVD recording & editing/Home theater fun.  I wanted to know which memory config. is better for my asus k8v-se deluxe/athlon64  3400+;  2gb PC3200 400mhz  or 3gb PC2700 333mhz?  Also is Kingston a good memory for overclocking?  Will the memory make a differance if I want to have a 1600mhz FSB? Also what is a very good DVDR+RW and sound card?

Here are my mobo/ memory specs.

System Memory Configuration  
Standard Memory:   0MB (Removable)  
 
Maximum Memory:   2GB using 400MHz DDR modules
 3GB using 333MHz DDR modules
 
Expansion:   3 Sockets  
 
CPU & ChipSet:   AMD Athlon 64    VIA Apollo K8T800 (VT8385)
 
Bus Architecture:   PCI  
Manufacturer System PN:   N/A  

Technical Notes  
This system only supports 4 banks of DDR400 memory. If two double-sided DIMMs are used, the 3rd socket is disabled.  

Bank Schema  

Using 333MHz DDR modules:
Virtually any configuration up to 3GB can be reached using any combination of Kingston's 128, 256, 512MB, and 1GB modules.
Using 400MHz DDR modules:
Virtually any configuration up to 2GB can be reached using any combination of Kingston's 128, 256, 512MB, and 1GB modules.
