OK i think i am right about the question i will be asking but i am not 100% sure

 

want total of 4g in pc..

 

OK if i have 2 sticks of pc3 2g 10600, and 1 stick of pc3 4g 10600.. either of the 2 will end up 4g total which is better/faster,     I know 2 sticks that are put in the rights slots u get dual speed.

so  which is faster and or better memory to use the 2 sticks or the 1 stick,,,    I say the 2 sticks but i could be wrong..

 

i am not doing this to my computer i have 8g in my pc,

 

it's just a question i been wondering about

The number "pc3 2g 10600" is the speed of the RAM, So. pc3 2g 10600 && pc3 4g 10600 are the same speed.

 

2 sticks is slightly more easy on the memory controller, but most times larger sticks do not have as tight of timings as the smaller ones,  you will not feel the difference, but 2 sticks are easier on the system.

more and slow vs less and fast, all comes down to how much ram you need to run your stuff, my self id sell the 2gig ram sticks and get a new/used 4gig one so as to be in dual channel.

Viper Security: ya but 2 sticks you will get dual memory 1 single stick you wont. so i think the 2 sticks of pc3 2g 10600 = dual if you place them in the right slots,   would be better then 1 single pc3 4g 10600.. Correct me  if I am wrong ...

if 10600 is the speed,, then why does it say  1,066MHz or 1,333MHz on the sticks

 

Shadow_647: which 1 you stating is more and slow vs less and fast? less what? all 3  memory sticks have same speed and same amount of memory.. This was just a Question i wanted to ask to see if i was right or not....

I don't need  to add any memory to my computer it has enough memory,

But if i did i would buy 4-sticks 4g each total of 16g that should be plenty for gaming

Sorry didn't see you have 3 memory sticks in all,brain fart.

You know you could probably add all of em to the computer then it be more and slow "8gigs" vs just use the two 2gig ones for dual channel "4 gigs"

 

 

if 10600 is the speed,, then why does it say  1,066MHz or 1,333MHz on the sticks

Get better then that, they like big numbers to make people think its fast, its all marketing, here the real shocker your 1333mgz ddr3 is really 166mgz ram.
