Memory dilemma

I had a G.Skills 2Gb [2x1GB Dual Channel Kit] PC2-6400 DDR2 and I lost one of the sticks. Ive got a stick of Kingston 2GB 2 GB DDR2-667 DDR2 SDRAM
My dilemma, do i keep the Kingston and sell The G,Skill? or is it possible to buy another 1GB G.skill and have the matched pair again. I've heard not.
OR sell both in order to buy a 2gb dual channel kit again. Remembering that the good stuff is pricey.

I suggest keeping the Kingston 2 Gb stick and selling the GSkill. It'd be too difficult to find a matching GSkill DIMM, unless you could paw through mountains of GSkill modules. And had a way to easily match them, as well.

I think thats the best plan, and use that to start a kitty for a 2Gb kit. The Kingston is Ok but it's not going to hold up to OC. Need the good stuff.

I didn't 'loose-loose' it! It's in a anti-static bag [don't ask why!] I just lost it as well as the vid card when the Biostar board went PHEEEWT! And as I didn't buy it but traded for it-Wanna buy a cheap stick?

I'm not "thrilled" with my Badaxe 2 mobo & its OCing, but I will say this about Intel brand boards.
They work & work for a very long time.
They are one of the most reliable mobos you can buy on the market.
I'm pretty sure that this board I'm using will never die, it will just grow old...

I need this particular board like I need a another shrink! 3 SLI--I realy need that! But it runs! I've just today got the hardware all working together the way I want. 3 IDE drives, a 160G 7200RPM for C:, a 80g for storage, and a 40g for my music as well as a DVD burner.I Put the tower on Casters today
I think I can start to learn the bios starting next week. A little OC is in order.
what other programs monitor and control fan speeds beside Speedfan. It's not reliable with this board. I was setting it up the other day and would turn off a fan to see what temp was affected.
None of them were. I shut down all the fans and the temps didn't change 1c. So I need to find some thing else.
