    hey man would you be so kind as to list you curent rig, and please do so on all future posts. Depending on your rig the choises might be different.(need 2 know motherboard)
  2. if you have a dual channel motherboard then get 2x2gb. dual channel is better than single channel, it gives you 5% better performance.
  3. In general 2 sticks offer the benefit of running in dual channel mode but this only gives you about a 7% or 8% gain over single channel. Not all computers support dual channel although most new computers that don't are lower end laptops.
  4. thnx guys my pc has dual channel. i will get 2 ram cards.
