Windows 7: 1x4GB VS 2x2GB additional RAM -- Does It Matter?

01 Jan 2013   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Build 7601 SP1)

Thank you all for your response. I read it all and I decided to by 2x2GB as I will probably not want any more RAM in the future... not on this PC. I don't even need the 8GB, I will only need it for Premiere Pro which I use to edit and render videos for my YouTube channel. The rest of the time it will be asleep I am sure xD

Very much appreciated all of your replies. Will add rep to all of you :P
