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)... | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Memory>2GB and 2x2GB RAM Kits> Related ressources: Forum4GB 2x2GB doesn't work with 2GB 2x1GB kit well ?
