Memory??????

  1. Can anyone explain to me why 1GB memory modules run at CL3-3-3-7 and the 512 modules run at CL 2.5-3-3-7?

    Is the 512 really that much faster then the 1024?

    Is there any benefit for having 2 x 1024 modules rather then 4 x 512 modules?

    (EXCEPT THE FACT THAT YOU ARE USING 2 LESS MODULES :) )

    Or would I get more out of having the smaller faster modules?

    This is what I really should have asked :)

    Having trouble deciding which memory modules to buy for my new system.

    What is better/faster between the following?

    - 4 x 512 Geil 2.5 - 8 - 4 - 4

    - 2 x 1024 Geil 3 - 8 - 4 - 4


    - 4 x 512 OCZ 2.5 - 3 - 3 - 7

    - 2 x 1024 OCZ 3 - 3 - 3 - 8

    Due to money restrictions I could only afford to go with one

    - 1024MB TWINX 3200XLPRO DDR RAM Corsair (2X512MB) 2 - 2 - 2 - 5

    Would I be better off going with the 2 GB of Geil/OCZ or 1 GB of Cosair?
