Joe is so right on with his comments. The faster the memory, the more picky it is with whom it's shares a bank with(unlike people). Go with pairs or you will end up wasting a lot of time(unless you have a lot of time to waist), hair; from pulling it out, and people around you will be much happier to see you.

I hate memory errors; they will corrupt a hard dive faster that you can say write.
