In terms of construction, a bank of RAM is any number of chips put side-by-side to build a 64 bit wide array of memory. The most popular widths of memory chips are 8 bits and 16 bits.
That means you could construct an array with four or eight chips.
Modules with less chips and the same amount of RAM generally are faster modules and will overclock better.
I seem to be having memory issues with my computer and so this is why I am asking about the number of chips. The Samsung memory came with my Dell. I took that out and installed 4x512 Kingston memory sticks. I am having a lot of blue screens that Microsoft says are related to RAM. I have tested my RAM over and over with Memtest 86 and with Microsoft's mem test. It's brand new memory, so I don't know what the problem is.
I have bought Kingston's value RAM before in the past (for a different computer) and didn't have any problems.
I didn't know that Kingston had RAM that was lower end. I mean, I knew that is was called "value" RAM, but I wasn't too sure of what they meant by that. I thought all of their products were high quality...thanks for telling me otherwise.
I looked up the memory you suggested. It is cheaper in price than the memory I bought.
