i have a dual 1.4 g4, which has 4 ram slots, up to 2GB. i have 512MB in there now, and am looking to fill up the remaining 1.5GB. would having 4x512MB chips be faster/slower than having 2x512MB and a 1GB chip?

also, any ram recommendations? apple's is way too expensive, and i've found some generic types on for $60 for a 512 chip.

any info is greatly appreciated

I'm not sure weather it will be faster or slower, bu t watch out withteh type of ram. G4 and G5 machines are very finiky when it comes to ram. I Have a 512 MB infineon stick and it crates problems when waking fomr sleep. Use High profile complanies like kingston and Crutial. These work flawlessly with apple machines.

Other World Computing and MacMall are pretty good sources. Maybe Amazon too, but I haven't checked.
