I operate an early 2008 MacPro im going to upgrade.

I currently have 4GB of RAM - 4 x 1GB sticks.

I could simply buy 4 extra sticks of 1GB which fills up the 8 slots - all being matched and evenly distributed across the risers etc.

What i was wondering, what if i was to get 2 x 2GB sticks -

would i install the 2 x 2GB on the spare 2ports on riser A, OR

Do i install the 2x2GB on riser A and move the 4 x 1GB on B, OR

Do i leave the 4 x 1GB across the 2risers and install a 2gb stick on A and the other on B - is that a matched pair?

As you can see - even with all the memory posts in this forum im still no clearer in my own situation, if anyone could be kind enough to point me in the right direction it would be greatly appriciated.
