I just upgraded my computer to an Athlon 64 3500+. I ordered the OCZ Dual Channel memory, but I accidentally ordered the wrong timings (not the revision 2). Anyway, I ordered 1 gig of the revision 2 after I realized I got the wrong stuff. I contacted OCZ about an exchange and they did just that for an extra $40.

So now I have 1gig of OCZ 3200 2-2-2-5 memory in my system, and another gig of the same stuff unopened.

My question is, would it be worth it to add another gig to my system, or should I return it to Newegg.com for the $277 - the 15% restocking fee?

Why do you want to use 2GB of RAM? 8O

I don't. I was wondering if it would be worth it to have 2 gig instead of just one for the $250.

I ordered more because I didn't want to wait for the exchange. I needed my comp. I figured I could return the unopened memory.

i doubt you'll get 250 dollars of performance out of that ram... if you're using windows, the memory management doesn't really account for having that much memory.

you're better off returning it for your money back

1 gig memory is enough for anything you will ever do on a home computer 2 gigs is just not necessary

better off investing in real top quality brand name and going for 2x512
