 Post subject: RAM???
PostPosted: Mon Aug 08, 2005 1:46 pm 
hi i am going to upgrade my ram, at the moment i have 2x128mb and i was wondering whats better; 2x512mb or 1x1gb (thats if there is any difference performance-wise).

also, can anyone reccommend a particular brand which is good value for money? (in other words i am a cheap-skate)

thanks in advance

it can be illustrated in a simple way ^_^

Instead of squeezing in all the traffic of data going to the RAM in/out through a single pipe.

Dual-channeling gives each group of memory it's own data-channel meaning there's a lot more bandwidth available.

So 2x512mb is generally better than 1x1gb :)
