4x512 Modules or 2x1 Modules?
My system is running 1 Gig of Crucial Ballistix PC 3200 memory in a 2x512 module set-up (dual channel). I wanted to ad another 2x512 sticks to raise it to 2 Gigs.
However, I've been informed 4x512 memory modules are never as good as using 2x1 GB modules. And that if I really want 2GBs of RAM the recommendation is 2x1 GB in dual channel.
The thing is I can afford another Gig but definitly not two at this time. Will I take a significant hit with the 4x512 configuration? Is it better to leave it at 2x512? I hope I didn't mess up.
