for my upgrade to a64 3000+. i plan on running 512mb in dual channell. but what mem should i use or is requiered? the mother board i plan on buying says it supports many memory types, i want to know what would be best for a rig with no over clocking, for example pc2700.

512 dual channel is going to be bad for when you what to upgrade later on, 256x2 just won't cut it for much longer. ANd your going to want pc400/pc3200 their the same thing and if you plan on verclocking just go PCxx00 anything higher then 3200.
