    If trees could scream would we be so cavalier about cutting them down. What if they screamed all the time for no reason?

    Just get 3x2GB and save yourself the trouble of upgrading ram for the next 3-5 years.

    Lol, budget doesn't allow 3x2GB, only 2x2GB or 3x1GB

    So, 4GB in dual channel or 3GB in tri channel?

    2x2gb. The difference between dual and triple channel are basically unnoticeable.

    Then get the 2*2 (not 4*4) and upgrade again later!
