comparing 2.5G with 2 DIMMs (2 + 0.5) vs 2G (single DIMM)

    Can anyone comment on whether it would be better to have a single 2G
    DIMM vs a 2.5G(2 + 0.5G configuration). I personally believe that
    having a mirror configuration delivers the best performance as such
    since the load is equally distributed plus the actual amount of
    maximum memory that can be addressed in a bus cycle is much higher in
    a 2G vs a 0.5G module.

    Please comment on this.It would be nice to understand this.
