2+4 RAM Vs 2+2 RAM

Hello guys,
I want to know if there will be any problems if I install 4gb ram with 2gb and is it better or not to have 2X2gb than that?.
I know that latencies and frequencies should be the same to work in dual channel.

  1. Yep, that should work
  2. So you want to use more than 4GB RAM correct? As in 6GB of RAM?

    Do you have at least a 64bit operating system? You need one to use more than 4GB of RAM.

    Edit: You should take a look at this excellent post at the top of this page:

    Sure?

    i'll try to make my question more exact:
    will 4gb + 2gb be faster than 2 gb + 2gb.

    It should work fine, but it's not ideal, and why not 2x4GB (unless your mobo doesn't support 4GB modules)?

    As far as 6GB, in any configuration, being any faster than 4GB, it may be, but I doubt it would be noticeable. Higher RAM amounts hardly ever speed up a system unless you have WAY too little to begin with.

    that's all I wanted to here.

    thank you guys :)
