Two 512(400) in Dual vs 1GB(400) Tags: Memory Intel Last response: December 4, 2005 4:39 AM in Memory Share SUS110092 December 3, 2005 3:35:49 AM So guys, which is better. May seem like an obvious question but dammed if I know. P 3.2 (Northwood) Intel 865GBF Raedon 9800Pro (128) Thanks S More about : 512 400 dual 1gb 400 RichPLS December 3, 2005 3:45:31 AM 2x512 or 2x1024mb is the only way to run dual channel memory, one stick only you get single channel, or half the bandwidth of dual-channel. SUS110092 December 3, 2005 5:14:07 AM Yeah but which would make my games run better........two of 512 in dual channel or just a single stick of 1GB. My aim is not to run a dual channel but to be able to play my games better. Or will there not be any difference. Thanks for the reply though.

Buy 2 x 512mb sticks or Buy 2 x 1024 sticks or Buy 4 x 512mb sticks (lowest latency solution, BTW and route I chose using Corsair TwinX XL Pro 2-2-2-5 timings) ONLY!
