Hi, I'm just wondering if i would be better of buying 2x 1GB sticks of ram, or would it be better to buy 1 stick of 2GB ram, I have read how it's better having 1 because it would use less power but i want to make sure before i buy them.

Also another question, is anyone able to tell from the specs of an old ram stick [LDR533D2512-1185 = DDR2 512mb] from my computer if its able to take GX22GB6400LX = GIEL 2GB value PC6400 DDR2??

Your help would be much appreciated

What brand and model PC do you have?
Or If custom built what motherboard do you have?
Some motherboards are single channel ram boards and q1 stick will work fine others are Dual channel boards and 2 sticks would be better.
