Hi,

 

I have a W7pro x64 PC and already have 2x2GB in the first two motherboard RAM slots.

 

2GB RAM sticks are expensive (again) at the moment but 1GB sticks are very cheap so I bought two on Oz (Australian) e-bay.

 

Which would be the best way to install them for max efficiency 2 / 1 / 2 / 1 --- 2 / 2 / 1 / 1 --- 1 / 2 / 1 / 2 --- 1 / 1 / 2 / 2 or it doesn't matter?

 

They are all DDR3 - 1333

 

Thanks.

The system will be using the 2x 2GB sticks first meaning that your 1GB sticks are not overloaded with the data and do a good job working with the 2GB sticks.
