Is the 2x2gb Ballistix Tracers better than buying 4x1gb?, and also if you am using 2gb modules do i put 2gb in one channel and 2gb in the other? or do i just use one channel?

2 Dimms are usually easier to OC than 4. Less voltage on the northbridge.

it would be better ro get 2x2gb, but i already had 2gb, which i bought 8 months ago, and last month, I added 2 more gb for $30 AR w/ free shipping! (i payed $80 + $5 s/h AR for the first pair). but my second pair are single sided sticks, and wont clock as high, but 4gb of slightly slower ram is better than 2gb of slightly faster ram.

on my 650i, i have the the sticks in this order: new stick, old stick, new stick, old stick. the first pair is in one color of slots, the second pair is in another color of slots.

i dont know, i was wondering the same thing, they might have to be dual sided, because if they were single sided, they would have to use 256mb ram chips, which are kinda rare (i think). but i am not really sure, but i would still go with 2x2. the single sided sticks still work, btw, my set is ok, it just doenst oc as well as the first set, but i dont do any cpu oc'ing, so i dont know how it would affect that, but ive heard its harder to oc with 4 sticks than 2.

Ballistix don't come in 8500 2x2. However the new 6400's come 2x2 CL4 and are double sided without clips. I've had mine to 1080 MHz but now run them at 860 4-4-3-11 because my CPU doesn't like higher FSBs. Here is the 2x2GB Ballistix thread:

On the 2x2GB, evidently some have clips...

www.priceguidenetwork.com edit (sorry won't take the link)

And some don't....

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...Desktop+Memory

That priceguide.com place has 2x2GB Tracers and Red.
