    Best use of RAM in PC's

    Just wondering if anyone can tell me - is it any better to have say 2 1G RAM strips rather than just 1 2G strip?

    Is there any noticeable difference?

    Thanks for any help

    It your PC could take a single 2 RAM stick, then no, there is no difference.

    Actually, there is difference. Some mother board support 'dual-ram' function (can't remember exact name) in which case is bettter to have 2 separate RAM as the memory usage is split into to separete memories rather then one ... hope it make sense

    But wouldn't that be dependant on having a matched pair

    No - All you need are the same modules (i.e. same size at the same speed / timings) for Dual Channel.

    Not aware of this, but it could be. I know it needs to be same capacity (e.g. 2 x 1GB or 2 x 2 GB)

    If your motherboard support this function you get usually two color on your memory slot ( e.g. odd's are purple and even's are yellow)
