You will have a nice boost. You may not notice from regular desktop use, but then again you may. Memory is sometimes hard to see a difference right away, except for benchmarks.

Run everest now, and then when you get the kit.. that's where you will see differences. The biggest difference is going from 2T to 1T timings, then the added speed is a bonus.

There is a significant difference between those two kits though. You'll love the 4400PRO. I also highly recommend the 3500LL PRO 2GB kit. Don't hestitate to pick up whatever one is cheaper. I have had better performance out of the 3500LL PRO kit, believe it or not.

Cool TWINX2048 / Opteron 185

I have been running the Corsair TWINX2048 for over a year at a FSB of 275 @ 1:1 timing with these settings 3-3-3-8 1T. My CPU is an Opteron 185 (275X11=3050Mhz) on a DFI LANParty UT SLI-D with eVGA 8800 GTS 640 video card. My system is stable in 3D games and benches very well but I cannot push the ram above 275. I am happy with this level of performance and will wait to see what the Quad core war looks like when AMD finally has as single CPU quad out to comapre to the Intel offerings.

275 is a great overclock, I'd be happy with it. I've been running the 3500LLPRO kit at 270 for well over a year now, rock stable. Corsair pushed out some amazing DDR1 right before DDR2 hogged the limelight.
