Default Ram

Hi all, i'm not sure if this is in the right topic (i'm pretty sure it is ) ,but i was wondering what the difference is between say 1 x 512mb stick of ram, or 2 x 256mb of Ram.
I just wanted to know, because i've always wondered... :P

the only reason people would use 2X256MB is if they have alot of memory slots.

I have TWO memory slots total, so i would have to use 1X512 MB stick.
