4x512 ram

349 2
i now have 2x512 sticks of corsair value ram, and i cant complain about them. theyve worked fine for me so far. however, i want to raise my settings in bf2 and FEAR and some other high end games and im pretty sure its my ram thats holding me back.

soooo, should i 1)just go ahead and pay $75 more dollars to get 2 more sticks of the value ram that i know works fine for my rig or 2)go through the hassle of selling my 2x512 for like $60 and buying 2x1gb sticks for ~$200 which would be an increase of about $65 the way i see it.

i know that 4x512 wouldnt be quite as fast as the 2x1gb, but is it really enough to make that big of a difference? and also, i dont really oc anything(mainly cause im a newb at this and am afraid of what i would screw up

anyways, would like to hear some input about both setups from some peeps in the know

The 2x1G will do you best. On the other hand the 4x512 will do good eventhough you will be using a Command of 2T vs 1T but the very small performance hit is only a few %.
BTW... read up and in no time you will be OCing simply because of the improved gaming performance

That Sandy should OC to 2600 or more easily...
A little vcore and setting a RAM divider will do it
