Re: Which is better? 2-512 or 1 Gig of DDRAM
Yeah, check out the specs for your motherboard. If it supports dual channel ram, go for the 2 sticks of 512 ram. There is a great performance boost when you have dual channeled ram. Think of it this way, when you have dual channeled ram, the information is being spread out to two sticks and therefore can be processed much more efficently.
If your mobo doesnt support the dual-channeled ram, then just opt for 1 gig stick. Either way your comp will get a boost.
