Actually, 1 gig is enough memory. Why you would need more I do not know. Also, unless your overclcoking, anything above pc3200 is overkill. In response to your other question, any ram with timing of 2-2-2-5 is good ram for athlon 64. The pc-3700,4000 is just to give more headroom for overclocking while keeping a 1:1 ratio.

Hands down, the OCZ PC-3700 EB Platinum is the best RAM for the Athlon 64. It can be had at newegg.com for around $330. And its worth every penny.
