It's hard to say for certain. If the system is swapping to the page file and giving you momentary lags, then going up to 6GB could be faster for you. If the current 4GB of memory is adequate for what you do, then the lower memory bandwidth of single channel operation could negate any small benefit of the extra memory. Actually trying it both ways is probably the best way to find out.
What's faster: putting them all in and having 6gb but in single-channel, or putting in two and having 4gb but in dual-channel?
It depends on whether your system mainboard has this capability (mixed or asymmetric mode). What is the model of computer if it's a brandname, or the mainboard if it's a generic system? If you don't know, you can Publish a Snapshot using Speccy.
is it possible for me to buy a single (identical brand and speed of course) stick of 2gb RAM and put that in and have 8gb in dual?
