Memory Upgrade Question...

What, in your Opinion, is the best way to Upgrade Memory...????

Max Memory in More, Smaller Modules filling all the Slots and Comply with DDR2 or DDR3, or, Max Memory in Fewer, Larger Modules to Comply with DDR2 or DDR3 use...???

Are the Latency Ratings going to Add Up for more Chips, or is the Advertised Latency a Flat Rate no matter how many Chips you use as long as they Rate the Same...???

Just somethin' I was thinkin' about when I was Bored at work.. Lookin' to Upgrade eventually from my 2Gb Memory to 4 and tryin' to find the best Route to Approach it at... More's Law can be a Ficckle thing sometimes... lol

If your computer has 4 slots and the max. capacity of the motherboard is 4GB, then install 1 GB on each slot. I would recommend smaller memory filling the slots as the data will travel efficiently between the slots.

Yeah. The way it uses the RAM modules (not sure exactly) is that the more you have, the faster and cleaner it runs. So if you have a max of 8 gigs on the mobo, with 4 slots, then 4 sticks of 2 gigs each would be optimal.
NOTE: 4 sticks of the exact same memory. I.e. same timings, same latency, same everything.
