    are you on DDR or DDR2?

    Most people will say 2 gig sticks, but I for one think that if you are on DDR1 you should go 4x512 harder to oc all of them. But the timing will be so much better with those chips/

    If you can do 1T now, you can say it byebye with 4 sticks of memory. If you can't do 1T, then it makes no difference as 2T is automatic with 4 slots in use. Now some motherboards claim to do only ddr333 with 4 stick, but I could do 2-2-2-7 @ 405 with four (well over 3volts).

    Resale value is obviously better with bigger memorychips, so if you can get now the money form your old memory, that 2x1gigs would cost the same as 2x512mb more, then go for them.
