      Another brand new setup question:

      I have an HP computer with an AMD quad-core and 6GB DDR3 RAM (triple channel?)..

      The motherboard (Foxcomm AERO) has (4) four memory slots.

      Am I better off to do 4GB x 3, or 4G x 4? In other words, do I gain in utility what I might lose in speed by going 4G x 4 (I have no idea if this is one of the MB’s that does the 1-4/2-3 triple chennel wiith four RAM slots trick, VS. 4G x 3?

      Thanks for any assist!

      I have found Adobe Premiere doesn’t utilize all my RAM that much. I only max out on RAM when I am working with dynamic link with Premiere & Encore or Premiere & Photoshop. Right now I have 6 sticks of 2GB DDR3. I was always under the impression that maintaining an even distro of RAM over as many sticks as possible was best for video editing. Although, now I’m not sure how much of an effect it has.
