I have 2x1GB of Patriot extreme Ram in my board at the moment. They are a matched set.
If i just get a second set of the same Ram will it definitely run ok in dual channel mode or could i get issues.
Is it better to just replace the Ram i have now with a 4 GB matched set ?
I know Ram isnt that expensive but i can get the second set of 2x1GB for less than half the price a new set would cost so i have to consider the option, if its viable.
Im running both XP and W7, both 32bit at the moment and i am aware of the limit. I plan to go over to 64 bit when W7 is released.

It's always easier to run 2 modules and only Patriot could guarantee that they will run. You will probably have to increase the voltage a bit, but they still might not run properly.
