    I am thinking of upgrading my RAM to 2GB. My question is should I go for 4x512MB or 2x1GB?

    2x1gb as better expandability and cost value
    2X1gb=2x4300=8600/-
    4x512mb=4x2700=11000/-

    I'd like to say that 1gb stick costs Rs.3.6k !!


    And hey, 1 512mb stick is Rs.2100 and not Rs.2700, hence, it should be Rs.8,400.

    2*1 GB , since it's economical also you can upgrade to at a later stage.

    There is no point in either quoting prices or aguing about them without mentioning brands. [and in case of high end ones, specific models also.(value series, gold series etc.)]

    Definitely Transcend is one of the best brands available here in India. (I am also using Transcend 512x2)
