1 DIMM vs 2

Would there be a noticeable performance disadvantage to using a single DDR3 DIMM (any mobo, this is a hypothetical) as opposed to two DIMMS (assume dual channel, and we're just playing games, no photoshop or 3d editing)

I'm trying to ascertain if a single 4 GB DIMM is a better buy than two 2 GB DIMMs.

    You'll notice the differences only when running a benchmark, and assuming the 1 DIMM 32-bit >= 2GB or 64-bit >= 4GB on a Dual/Quad Channel MOBO.
  2. That's what I suspected. Thanks!
