if you have a dual channel motherboard then get 2x2gb. dual channel is better than single channel, it gives you 5% better performance.

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.
