2x1gb or 1x2gb? Not sure...
Hello - I wondered if one of you fine fellows could help me out with picking some memory...
I have a Samsung R40 laptop, which I occasionally use to play the odd game here and there; it's not brilliant for games, so anything I can do to squeeze a couple more FPS out of it would be great. I have to buy it some more memory, and am getting 2gb, as that's the maximum it'll accept.
My question is - would I be better off with 2x1gb, or 1x2gb? I suspect the dual-channelly goodness of 2x1gb would be preferaable, but there seems to be some suggestion that a single stick is more efficient.
The sticks I'm considering are Kingston ValueRam (2x1gb, not a kit, 21 quid), Crucial (2x1gb kit, 16 quid), or OCZ (1x2gb, 30 quid). They're all PC2-6400, CL5, 800mhz. As the machine only accepts 2gb, filling all the bays isn't a problem.
Is it likely to make much difference?
