ram recomendations?

any one got a suggestion for upgrading my ram from my corsair xms twinx 512 3200llpt. at least a gig (2x512) of low latency of pc3200, 3500, or 3700. ATM im considering corsair xms twinx1024-3200llpt or twinx1024-3200xl and i think frys has corsair CMX512-3700PRO for 99 bucks a stick. i'd also like to consider using it in a 64bit system when i finally give in and upgrade

if price isn't a problem find some bh-5's...in the 1 gig flavor thats mighty hard to do, but I got my 512 bh5 for $150. Serious fsb+ramspeed is better than large quantities in most cases. I'd look at PQI, they are cheap and I've read nothing but good thigs. Some people think they are new and not reputatble but if you've opened up servers for the last 5 years you might(by that I mean probebly) find that PMI has been makin server type ram for a long time. I've seen some PMI/PQI with bh-5's too from what I recall.

hyper-x works wonders, for me at least . 2-3-2-6 timings. slightly expensive for a gig, and that's what keeps me at 512 instead of a gig, although i plan to buy 2 more 256mb sticks, as both of the boards i use have 4 memory slots.
