    Hi
    I have an intel sandy bridge mobo (MSI P67-GD55 (révision B3)) with 2 ddr3 10600 GSkill 2 gigs sticks, dual channel is enabled.
    I want to put more memory in but wonder what's best: 1 x 4 gigs stick or 2 x 2 gigs sticks without disabling dual channel ?
    thx for your advise.

    hey potje,..
    i have recently bought GSkill ddr3 1333 8GB DDR3 DC kit
    comes in two sticks of 4 GB each current price hangs around 55 euro's

    the 1600 ones aren't that much more expensive..
    just my 2 cents worth..

    and btw my 8 GB 1333 kit turns a good 7.5 in WEI, in dual channel of course

    i would go with 2x2 cuz that leaves u room to install another kit if u with to upgrade further and will take up less space
