Default Re: which is the better option...

This is from personal experience.

When I had two 512MB modules inserted in my mobo my CPU had 128BIT access to the modules in this mode(Dual Mode).

I then brought 1GB memory module and only used this module. And I only had 64BIT access to the module.

Since then I have upgraded, again, see sig, and now have two 512MB modules which means my CPU has 128BIT access to the modules.

So go for the dual channel mode if you can. Which means two modules of the same make and spec inserted in your mobo.
