i have intel dh55tc mobo and win 7 64 bit.
Earlier I had 2x2gb ram (same model, dual channel) but now one of the ram stick got faulty and am left with just 2gb ram. i can't find the same ram model to replace the faulty one and also i'm thinking of upgrading to 6gb ram. so should i go for 2gb(old)+2x2gb (new)ram configuration or a 2gb(old)+1x4gb(new)?

Your board does not support Tri-channel memmory - so it will me 2x2 GB or 2x4 GB or 2x8 GB

Mixed memory capacity will cost you a small amount in performance a syou no longer running in optimal dual channel mode. Your better off just going with 2x4GB and selling the 2GB.

you can run 2x2 + 2x1 in dual channel, but I agree in principle get 2x4
