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.

2 x 2Gig definately the best IMO...but if I could afford 4gig of ram I wouldn't really care if it was 4 sticks or 2.

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
