2x 2GB. Gives you more room for expansion, lower power consumption and some motherboards / processors like 2 sticks better than 4.

Wow, I should say, "what the hell are YOU talking about". It looks like you replied to the wrong thread because I have no clue what you're referring to.

id say generally 2 X 2Gb but i find that in the uk 2 X 2Gb tends to be more expensive than 4 X 1 Gb,

so usually i would probably get 4 X 1 Gb but thats coz im cheap

I preffer 2x2GB. It gives more space for adding more RAM and actually has more access to each other. I have yet to see a 4GB module. My motherboard supports 16GB RAM for X reason.

2x2gb, allows for more expansion, and 2gb sticks are really cheap now too.

plus you get higher transfer rates with 2x2gb because its dual channel not quad channel kit.
