is filling all 4 ram slots with 2 dual channel kits(2gb) on intel 945p chipset with
pentium d 920 bad Or worse than only filling 2 with one dual channel kit for total of 1 gb.

the reason i am thinking this is because i can either buy one dual channel kit 1gb now and then buy another when i need it or staright out buy a 2gb dual channle kit (2x1gb) rather than having 4x512mb, becus the 2gb is os fkin expensive here in canada the corsair value stuff i see all over american sites pc2-5300 in america i see it for like 170 but here in canada it is like 300$. WHAT WILL GIVE BETTER PERFormance IN BF2????

yeah 2gb of ram is all good but why don't u get 1gb sticks. If u fill up all 4 ram slots then ur oc can suffer. With 4 slots filled up the memory controller has to work that much harder. I had 2gb of ram and it's stopped my oc at like 20% I took 2 sticks out and it oc's better now.

ye thats what i heard about amd cpus becus they have the mem contorller on the cpu but pentiums have it on the north? or south bridge i don rmbr so does it still suffer?? lol when everyhting is said and done i will probably end up getting ocz gold ddr2-675 2gb kit becus that looks like the best price to perf i can find on ncix.com at $329 guess i wil have to cut down on motherboard then... intead of 955x chipset mobo i will get 945p as looking ta it it looks almost exactly the same.

Humm, Yea, It doesn load up your memory controler, which is never good. The memory is controled on the northbridge, along with the CPU, which is why it affects you OC. Hum.. You would probably be better off with a 955x board and 1 GB of ram.. 329 bux is quite a bit to spend on memory if your going to get a 945P board.
