Hi, I got an OCZ Platinum Revision-2 - 800MHz Dual Channel (i.e 1GB * 2) RAM modules and I have an "Intel D945GNT MotherBoard" running with 1GB RAM with a DRAM frequency of 266.7. Intel's website mentions that only 667MHz is supported max... :-( So, can I use the new OCZ RAM modules on my motherboard along with the old RAM module or atleast separately without the Old RAM???.. Any problems I may be facing because of doing that??

If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.
Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".
So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.
It sounds like something isnt working right, what operating system are you using, Vista? I would take out the original 512 and see what it says after, often ram isnt compatible if it is too different in size and speeds. Also, if your motherboard supports dual channel ram and you have the extra 512 chip it wont run in dual channel mode, you would run better with just the 2 chips then the added 512 chip.
This sounds to me that there is an interupt problem with your computer system. Take a look at the manaul that came with your computer at the time of purchase, it will have information on installing extra memory and setting up interrupts etc.
Hi hellinme, since you want to go with Kingston, can I suggest this link. http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/hyperx/modelsinfo.asp?root=
I picked the memory you wanted. DDR2 800MHz. Than picked, Asus for the board & scrolled down through motherboards till I came to the P5N-D board. Listed there will be kingston hyperX memory suggested to work the best for the motherboard.
The memory, KHX6400 D2ULK2 2G(2x1gb), is not listed.
If I can help you further, feel free to post. Suggestions & comments welcomed.
Check your manual and find the QVL list. Memory tested to work in your board is listed there. I found a link that shows your board. Click the Download on the left & check your manual. http://www.qdigrp.com/qdisite/eng/news/20030521.htm
You Max speed is 400Mhz memory as you will see at the link.
