In the past I was told that for RAM it was better to have 2 memory cards rather than one.
e.g. have two 4GB cards rather than an 8GB card.
Is this still the case?

It depends weather or not the motherboard supports 'duel channel'. And also you need to use to identical chips. Ideally a pair sold together for the purpose.

Just looking at getting a new comp. Seeing if the old rule of "2 memory cards are better than one" still applies.
Will have to check out the motherboard.

From memory, pardon the pun, Dual channel is slightly faster but needs a matched pair and a motherboard that supports it.

If you plan to upgrade ram in the future you are limited to replacing with 2 bigger sticks rather than adding 1 or 2 more.

For the SSD I have a 960 Evo M.2 and it is like Shyte off a shiny shovel.

Possibly there are newer cheaper options on the market now though. :)

With modern PC's you won't notice the difference unless you are loading the memory heavily with applications, playing Tetris or Solitaire will be fine but as mentioned a decent SSD drive makes a hell of a difference.

Are you looking for a laptop or a desktop?
