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.

Standard Memory: 0MB (Removable)

3GB using 333MHz DDR modules

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