i want to dual channel my computer and have 1 gig of ram at the same time but im stuck. is it more benifical to get 4 x 256 or 2 x 512? there are both at ddr 400 and my motherboard supports both of them.

the less sticks the better the seek time because it has to address less slots. so get the 2 512, that will give u the best performance

It's a good question, but I'd be more inclined to go with 2 X 512mb just for the fact I could add more later... The price is also a factor though... I think the less sticks you have the faster it reads too...

i agree. nothing can slow ram down like full slots, lol. just get 512X2, or better yet, 1024X1

If you want to go duel chan 512x2 is your best bet.
