I am upgrading my RAM in my computer. Is it better to run four 1GB in asynchronous mode (total of 4GB), or is it better to run 3GB in interleaved mode (two 512MB and 1GB)?

Thanks,

Thanks for your response!!! Can you tell me the difference between asynchronous mode and interleaved mode? I was trying to research it, but could not get a straight forward answer. From reading, it seemed the interleaved mode is faster, but only by a couple %. Therefore it seems to go with the option of 1 more gig of RAM and run in asynchronous mode..does this sound correct? Thanks, -Tim
