i got a ocz platinum revision 2 ddr2800 on a evga 650i ultra

overclocked to 889mhz @ 4-4-4-12-2t @ 2.1v

i planning to add 2gb more to make it 4gb.. but microcenter here sells the platinum revision 2 more expensive than the ones sold online.. i'd like to have it as early as possible that's why i don't want to order online cause it will take 3-5 days... i live in paramus, nj..

if i'm gonna buy ddr2 memory of other brands like crucial ballistix and the corsair xms2.. are they ok with ocz? and is there a disadvantage using different brands and advantage of using the same exact memory?

There won't be any performance hit either way, but I'd recommend sticking with one brand just to reduce the problems you get.
