Solved 2GB or 4GB on RAM stick? Tags: Chipsets RAM Motherboards Last response: February 9, 2010 12:42 AM in Motherboards Share ss3251 February 4, 2010 2:37:43 AM Which is better... two sticks of 2GB RAM or 1 stick of 4GB RAM? Is there even a difference? I am asking because i am looking at a building an machine with an intel i-5 and the board can handle up to 16GB w/ 4 slots. Clearly either way there is room to expand the memory later...
