If investing in 1066 RAM make little sense, investing in 2x2GB when you have 4x1GB makes none at all.Also, you're suggesting a 4x2GB setup, how is that less stressful?
I'm not, in most cases 8GB isn't necessary, it's nice to have, but not needed.
However, having a 2x2GB setup facilitates an easier upgrade path. If you already have 4x1GB the only reason to upgrade is if the RAM is significantly better. IE going from 4x1GB of crappy Value RAM, to 2x2GB of RAM with D9 chips. That's an upgrade.
