I have 1 gig of RAM. The way it is set up is that the memory mode is in Single Channel mode.
So I have x2 256 module and a 1 512 module.
I'm not good at figureing out the ram stuff. The x2 256's look like this...
That's not the ram I have, that's just what it looks like.
The 512 one just looks like your normal ram chip.
That image IS the one I have.
When I have all 3 in at 1 gig, I'm in single mode. But if I take the 512 out, I'm in dual mode. I understand that I have to get another 2 256's to put me at 1 gig in dual mode.
After all that, my question is: Am I better off having 512 ram in dual mode, or 1 gig but at single mode.
I Ask because when I'm at 1 gig, the machine does not act like a machine with a gig of ram. So I was wondering...
