Two 1GB dimms will be faster than four 512MB dimms.

 

With four dimms you have to run T2 command rate, wich is even more of a hit than going from 2-2-2 to 3-4-4 at T1 command rate.

 

Defiantly get the 2x1GB.

Yup, 4 ram sticks usually is harder to overclock aswell, not to mention draws more power. 2 x 1GB all the way.

2 sticks is better than four, especially for OCing. Less points of failure.
