  1. Are you asking price or performance? The 2 512s will only (problem free) run on Win2K and WinXP, so for Win98 or ME, stick with the 2 256 idea.

  2. No, he's asking what gain he'll get from using 2x256 rather than 1x512 methinks.

  3. if crash is correct, then the diffrence will be less than 10%, dual channel can do little to help the AXP because the cpu cannot physically utilise the extra bandwith.
