HP P6320F memory question

Hi,

Maybe someone could help me figure this out.

The HP P6320F comes with 8GB (2GBx4)of DDR3. After reading this it sounds like if I were to take out 2 sticks the RAM would actually run faster. Is that correct? If you were me would you rather have the full 8GB or just 4GB but faster?

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
I don't know where you have read that taking out 2 sticks will give you better performance,because its not correct .
Although the difference between 4GB and 8GB isn't much,but i would go for a 8GB 1066 rather than 4GB 1333.
However make sure that you have a 64bit OS(for either 4GB or 8GB) installed because a 32bit OS recognizes max 3.2GB of RAM
