And most everybody has been recommending that you get 4 GB. Since that's 1x4 as per your first post, I suggest that you get 2x2, not 1x4.

Yeah you require 2 sticks to run in dual channel mode. 2x2 or 2x4. For gaming, you won't see any difference. If you are going to overclock, and want to try and push it as hard as it will go, you will usually get better results with less memory, but that is not always the case.

I'd 2nd this. 4 is all that's "needed" today (as far as games are concerned), but that could change in the near future.

This Tom's Hardware article is a good read imo.

Really, as cheap as it is atm, why not spring for it?

No, you can run dual channel with fours sticks. There are generally four slots for dims (except for x58) and you can use all four and still run dual channel.

Correct. 2 or 4 sticks for dual channel operation.

OP posted 1x4 for his 4gb option, which will not work in dual channel.

My bad I read that as four 1 GB sticks, not 1 four GB stick.

I know it's too late, but let me tell something, you guys who did not realize that Vista or Win7 steal memory space of RAM.

6GB RAM is best bet for gaming instead of 4GB. I learned it from another forums.
