My VNF-250 mobo and Athlon64 3000+ is coming in soon and I need memory for it.

I want to go ahead and get a 1 GB stick instead of 2 512k since it might slow it down.

Anyone know what sticks are single sided and have low latencies?

Thanks

2 512mb modules will actually speed it up because you will be able to take advantage of dual channel. Dual channel effectivley doubles your memory bandwidth.

LOLS, note to self, NEVER listen to any advice from folken

most AMD systems do not support dual channel memory and especially not mine

S754 can't use dual channel.

I think OCZ has one around CAS 2.5 that's reasonable. Most 1gb sticks are not low latency sticks. The A64 can't make good use of super LL anyway.

The 1GB sticks on the market would be double-sided.
