    Default DDR2 1100 - 2sets 2x2gb or 1set 4x2gb

    Ok, ready to buy some RAM - but found that 2 sets of 2 sticks 2gb each is less than 1 set of 4 sticks 2gb each - which way should I go - will order them all at the same time so probably what I receive will have been produced about the same time. It's about $40 less to buy 2 sets of 2 sticks of 2gb.

    2 of these
    Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1100 (PC2 8800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

    or 1 of these?
    Newegg.com - G.SKILL 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1100 (PC2 8800) Quad Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
    GA-EP45-DQ6, Q6700 @ 3.33ghz, 8GB G.Skill DDR2 PC 8800, Thermalright 120 Ultra Extreme, Gigabyte Poseyden case, Geforce 7300GS, WD 1TB Caviar Black, SG 250 Barracuda, Raid 5 with 3 SG 250 Barracudas on ICH10R, Raid0 with 2 WD 640 Caviar Black on 3Ware 9650SE 4LPML, LG Bluray DVD R/RW, Corsair HX620W

    I personally would get the cheaper 2 sets of 2x2GB. You should be fine like that, and with those model's being new your chance of getting sticks with different IC Chips on them is very unlikely

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking - but wanted to get a second opinion.
