If you get 4x512mb, the memory will have lower latencys than 2x1gb
It depends on the RAM he chooses to get, 4x512mb wouldn't necessarily always have tighter latency...the tightest 2x1gb kit I could find was 2-3-2-5, so yeah if he got 4x512mb that was high performance 2-2-2-5 RAM then it'd TECHNICALLY be faster on a scale not noticeable, but if he were to simply get valueRAM of like 3-3-3-8 timings then it'd be the same
