the advice I need is whether to buy a 2GB stick or 2x 1GB sticks (it
has 4 slots and is running debian x64)
I know the general rule is buy the biggest single stick you can
afford, *but* will have a 1gb stick and a 2gb stick stop the ram from
running in dual channel? What is the better option for performance? I
have heard that if you have a 1 gb stick and a two gb stick then half
of the 2gb stick runs in dual channel is that right?
Re: Dual Channel RAM
For more precise advice, mentioning the motherboard make and model would help.
Generally speaking, match what you've got. The 1GB capacity is the
sweet spot for price right now, and unless you have plans of
going over 4GB, I'd just stick with the 1GB stuff.
