C90 memory

The ASUS C90 supports up to 3GB of memory, and could support a configuration of one 2GB stick and one 1 GB stick, and I am wondering how big a factor identical sticks are when it comes to this, in other words will it be better to have 2 identical 1 GB sticks, or one 2GB and one 1GB?

Yes, but it doesn't exactly throw it's support one way or the other, I was just wondering if it is in any way a problem having mismatched memory sizes, to the extent that it would be more beneficial having the two sticks of 1 GB

Odd. It seemed clear to me.

"Maximum memory is reached by using one 2GB SODIMM and one 1GB SODIMM."

"to the extent that it would be more beneficial having the two sticks of 1 GB"

No one will tell you the benefits of more RAM. That's your choice and you decide why you do that. I see crucial offer the 2GB stick which you replace one of the 1GB sticks so isn't that clear enough?
