Default Ram configuration question (windows home server)

Which configuration would be better for Windows Home Server? 2x512mb DDR with 2-2-2 timings and dual channel OR 4x512 DDR with 2.5-3-3 and no dual channel? Any suggestions?

neither.

But of those 2 choices 2x512 .. easier on the motherboard.

Doesn't matter. Home Server is not fussy about spec.

So if WHS is not fussy about spec, then is more ram better then less just like with any other setup? I know this isn't a power rig with uber gaming in mind but will I see a difference having 2 Gig of ram (4x512) over 1 Gig (2x512) for day to day performance or is 1 Gig enough.

Well I threw all 4 sticks in and it booted (booted to a Ubuntu Live CD, Windows Home server is not installed on this box yet) at 2.5 timings, dual channel mode so I am running some test to see if it is stable. I have 2 sticks of some cheap samsung PC3200 ram and two sticks of OCZ PC3200 Platinum ram for a total of 2Gigs on a NF4 mobo and a 3800+ X2 CPU. I know it is kind of overkill for a Windows Home Server but I had the parts so why not.
