Just looking for some quick advice - I'm currently planning on upgrading my system from a 4GB system to an 8GB system. I'm running an ASUS MTA49T Deluxe MoBo(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131363
) running an AMD Phenom II x 4 955 BB, ATI Radeon HD 4890 on 2x2GB OCZ 1066 modules. I've had issues with these chips since I built the rig (they were lower end OCZ). I'm not planning on holding onto them at this point.
My main question, going to an 8GB system, would it make more sense going 4x2GB or 2x4GB setup? I assume the former would technically be better, putting all my dimm slots into use (but obviously costs more). Is there any real-life advantage to that or am I imagining things?
I'm also thinking of moving to DDR3 1600 to up the ante a bit. Also, if anyone has any good suggestions on kits for 8GB, let me know (either something like a good 2x2GB kit that I can buy two of, or a 2x4GB)
