well normally 1gb is about as dense as you want to go as some mainboards cannot handle that density and also latency increases as well normally on the larger modules, so most people hang around at the 1gb mark...and hot damn 8gb.... what is the machine spec and mainboard model you are using?
thats alot of ram but the system sounds like an excellent setup. I am not too familiar with vps so i am not sure what kind of memory consumption It will use. If I were to go about a project I would probably just but 2gb to start with and go from there. Are you using a Tyan mainboard?
oh I gotcha. I was curious about the mainboard because most dual opteron boards usually have about 8 slots at least the ones that will fit in a 1u environment. I know msi has a dual opteron board with 4 slots but it won't fit in a 1u chassis (found that out the hard way) I was hoping for another link to a good 1u capable dual opteron mainboard for a cheaper price than the tyan s2882-d's that i usually buy
a little of all, I am still in development stages but I will be offereing dedicated/voice/shared/game I think I am about 2 months away from fully ready and going live with everything. I have been doing my research and testing for about the past 10 months now I believe. you can view a preview at availnetworks.net it is getting there but far from done of course haha
I've used them and they are very quick to deliver.

Yeah thats nutz. $599.00 is way 2 much. I can get 2 gig sticks for $362.00. Yes its supertalent but its lifetime warrenty with samsung chips or micron and have never had a issue with performance or failures.
my experience shows that outer brand name doesnt matter a whole lot it is the quality of the chips on the board and layers. I have always had good compatility and performance success with samsung chips so that is what i stick with. A great place (have to be a dealer but not that hard to sign up with them) to buy ram is all components.com they are a great company and make really high quality modules but I always look for 6 layer boards with samsung chips always a good combo
