Bobsama February 22, 2007 4:56:36 PM I'm still leaning toward saving a little money with a dual-channel kit... I don't think I'll use more then 2GB for now... They'll probably drop in price soon; 256mb is pretty much phased out for much of the market (save, Dell and other low-end manufacturers). I think I'll wait it out for now; the motherboard I am looking at supports a maximum of 8GB over 4 DIMMs... not like I have the money to max out the board ($800)... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
