I'm planning on getting a Nforce2 board, and I'm not sure which way to lean when it comes to memory. Here are my options:

1. 2 sticks of Samsung 2700 256mb ram (Taking advantage of the dual channel DDR)

2. 1 stick of Samsung 2700 512mb Ram (maybe get more ram next year)

They're both rougly the same price on newegg. If I go with option 1, would 512mb of ram be enough for gaming purposes? Or should I get the single stick, and another 512mb later on? Kinda spendy going the 2nd route.

From what I can put together, from info I have seen & heard.
Go with the 2 x 2700 sticks of memory.

It'll give you the most bang for your buck.
