2.5 gb 533 or 1.5 gb 800

what is better 2.5 gb at 533mhz using 1x1gb and 3x512mb
or
1.5 gb at 800mhz using 1x1gb and 1x512mb

the only difference it has on me is that my e6600 doesn't want to get past 2.7ghz
runnin at the ram at 533

i'm a newb so i could be just missin somethin real obvious

    Performance wise,2.5 GB would be better because many programs/games benefit from 2GB+ RAM.
    Timings/Speeds have a little impact on the performance,they are mostly important in OC'ng
