Default Re: More RAM?

I think that's if you are under a 32-bit OS, where a 32-bit OS doesn't handle 4GBs of RAM, efficiently. I think it can only handle up to 3GB-3.5....but 2 x 1GB in dual channel, is optimal for a 32-bit OS.

They do run slower, but double the RAM compinsates.

I run 4 Corsair value select chips, but I have vista. It does help, (I got it for SupCom, as the cheapest upgrade possible at the time)
