Copmuter Ram for Windows Answered

ok. me and a friend are building several computers and i want to know what is better when adding ram. since one of the mobos im focusing on now has 4 slots and a maximum of 4GB DDR2 Dual channel, what would be better: having 2x sticks each 2GB worth or having 4x sticks 1GB worth cause im not sure if it will amke the PC faster if i had 4 ram cards in so it distributes the data. anyone have an idea if its better with 2x 2GB or 4x 1GB cards?

If the bus is fast enough, it shouldn't matter (a guess), but if the bus is significantly slower then the max speed of the CPU, you may be slower with the 2x ....then again, I could have my logic upsidedown :-)
