Opinions on memory configs

  1. Ok, here are the options (irrespective of cirucmstances/scenario);

    XP Pro SP3, 32-bit, PC6400 ram

    a) 2 x 1gb dual channel memory, totalling 2gb

    b) 1 x 2gb, 1 x 1gb, non dual channel but totalling 3gb

    c) 2 x 2gb, dual channel, totalling 4gb, (consider 32-bit os), will only utilise 3gb, thus wasting 1gb

    So, which would you go with for best performance?

    The options take into account amount of ram slots in each pc (vary from pc to pc)

    Thanks :)

    if its not at least dual channel throw it out of the mix. I'd go with the 4 to be safe just in case I want to upgrade my os.
