Default Thoughts on these?

Hi everyone,

New member here, just kinda found this place doing some surfing.

I recently bought these memory sticks:

Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB 2X1GB PC2-8500 x2 (4 GB)

Whats the consensus on these? Secondly, for my new build I'm looking at going with Vista Home Premium and dual booting with XP 64 bit ed.
Will there be any problems booting between the two if I overclock?

Third, same question but with a XP 32 bit using VMWare or Parralles....any issues?

Thanks in advance for the help.

don't know about the ram.

if dual boot is being affected by overclock then you're not ocing right so no it shouldn't be.

why vista home premium? vista business is far more enthusiast oriented. ultimate is a complete waste of money.

third, i don't know much about those programs.

My System Specs


Sorry- Alot of people here are away ATM: The RAM is just fine- have you tried overclocking- some people have very good results with these, but it's highly variable. Overclocking should give you no trouble with the dual boot.
