    Default Need advise on memory upgrade....

    Guys/gals, thought of upgrading my sodimm rams in my notebook....came across a few choices like

    2 x 1gb Myr$185-203 each

    Mushkin
    Corsair
    Twinmos
    Kingston

    Or

    1 x 2gb Myr$485

    OEM version using infineon chips but offer only one year warranty.


    Which combination would you prefer?

    Thanks for your input.

    definitely 2x 1gb.... 1x 2gb is priced at a premium... unless you need it, i don see the purpose of spending more than double for it.

    besides being cheaper, there are some unofficial tests that states that a 2X1GB combo actually runs better than a 1x2GB combo. somehow the cpu is able to better utilise both ram sticks.

    Depend on what your notebook can support. If it can support up to 4GB, then I suggest you go with 1 x 2G RAM. That will leave you another empty slot to upgrade later.

    Sorry, din make myself clear earlier.
    Currently, I am running 1 x 512mb and 1 x 1gb at 533mhz.
    The only 2gb ram availabe is OEM version at 533mhz.

    What I am wondering is the OEM version reliable? coz other branded ones offered lifetime warranty. Where as the OEM version is only 1 year warranty, is OEM just as good and reliable as branded ones?

    Thanks Ola and everyone
