    don't get two different rams. its better to have one stick than several. makes overclocking more of a challenge.

    you overclock ram by either a) changing the ram timings in bios or b) altering the motherboard's front side bus (FSB) or c) going out to the barn and hitting the animals rear with a cattle prod

    your mobo will support 2700 and beyond rams. if i were you,
    i would sell my 2700 stick, then buy the 512mb of the stuff you
    had in mind. it isn't a good idea to have 2 different brand name
    rams in one mobo as it may cause some compatibility issues.

    umm you would steadily increase the FSB until it gets unstable.
    also try changing the timings to make ram go fast.

    look at the stickied post above, that should help you out
