    I'll check with purchasing to see if there's any reason why and also if we can source any 2 x 2 Gb packs of memory.

    Is photochop running that slow Bobster or are you just manipulating mega-sized RAW files again?

    I dont think there is that much demand for 2x 2GB packs (present company excepted) and the costs for such packs would be quite expensive. Also this would really only be benificial for customers with a 64bit O/S as normal Windows 32bit both XP & Vista versions dont really support much more than about 3.5GB of memory.

    I think we will see them more in the future expecially with the release of Vista however i think it will be another 3-6 months before we see manufactures releasing 2x 2GB kits for the mainstream

    Let the flaming commence!

    i'm editing 30x20in 300dpi 16bit files - with 3 layers my machine hits 2GB i really want 6GB in it as Photoshop CS2 under XP64 / Vista64 will use 3GB of RAM for main memory and use the remaining as Scratch before hitting the HDD..

    if i go with 4GB 4x1GB then i'll only get the use of 1GB for scratch..

    Just FYI a 4gb (2 x 2gb) kit direct from Crucial currently costs £714 inclusive for PC5300. Over 3x the price of the 2gb kit. They don't seem that competitive generally but thats probably an indication of the price you could expect to pay.

    How about getting something like this for scratch (with either 2 or 4gb of DDR in it) and running 4x1gb main system memory?

    Windows 2000 Memory Support. With Windows 2000 Professional and Server, the maximum amount of memory that can be supported is 4 GB (identical to Windows NT 4.0, as described later in this section). However, Windows 2000 Advanced Server supports 8 GB of physical RAM and Windows 2000 Datacenter Server supports 32 GB of physical RAM using the PAE feature of the IA-32 processor family, beginning with Intel Pentium Pro and later.

    Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003 Memory Support. The maximum amount of memory that can be supported on Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003 is also 4 GB. However, Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition supports 32 GB of physical RAM and Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition supports 64 GB of physical RAM using the PAE feature

    But Bobster is using XP x64, which can address a maximum of 128Gb of RAM...

    EDIT - I want 128Gb of RAM. I want it now.

    So 128 Gb of RAM split over 4 slots (standard desktop motherboard) works out to be 32 Gb per stick.

    I'd hate to see the size of that module and also the price for this

    But why aren't you selling it?

    Seriously though - there are enthusiasts now who will be wanting more than 1Gb in a slot. Most of the C2D compatible motherboards I've been looking at of late support 8Gb of RAM over 4 slots - I'd love to be able to get a (not too stupidly priced) pair of 2Gb modules, then add another pair down the road when I win the lottery.

    I have to admit I;d seriously consider buying 2X2GB now. if the price is still near £800 for PC5300 though, then no chance. 4x1GB of PC6400 works out faster and cheaper.
