    2x1GB is more power efficient than 1x2GB and you're also getting a free slot XD

    just buy a dual channel MOBO....and put any same bus 1GB RAM into two slots and your dual channel is on.

    bd te dual channel kit pawa jai na i guess ...... and pawa geleo mone hoy aktu premium pricing korbe ........ basically u dont need to buy dual channel ram kits bcoz it is just a marketing gimmick. You buy 2 Ram DIMMS of same model and same specifications. You will be able to enjoy dual channel bandwidth by dat. Same goes for triple channels. In foreign countries, the dual and triple channel kits are probably cheaper than if u buy them separately and hence they are available widely. I dont think u will get such price advantage in bd if u can find the kits.

    PS: Does ur motherboard support dual channel memory configuration ? All modern motherboards support it but by any chance if u r using an old motherboard, please check it.

    that more bandwidth barely affects performance.
    so power saving, slot saving, cost saving, less heat justifies 1x2 > 2x1

    I would go for 2GBx1, since you free up a slot & you can get another 2GB stick later on for dual channel!

    I have the experience of using 1GBx2 & 2GBx1.I didn't get that much of performance difference at all.So I think 2GBx1 will be the right choice atleast it will save a slot for future upgrade.

    LOL, the choice is obviously 2GBx1 if you're planning on upgrading later (which will probably be quite soon). 2GB is now the min these days and 4GB is the norm, so you'll find yourself in a difficult position should you need to extend your RAM.
