4gb RAM is much harder to overclock and you can get RAM at higher speeds and lower latency in a 2x1 configuration than 2x2. Check this out which places a 2gb of faster RAM vs 4gb of slightly slower RAM. Even without overclocking, 4gb gets a slightly better max framerate which results in a slightly higher average, but 2gb of faster RAM provides a marginally higher mininmum which will translate to less choppy gameplay which you will notice more than the extra .5 average fps.
4GB RAM much harder to overclock? That a load of nonsense. My friend used 4GB 800MHz DDR2 OCZ Platinum, it very easy to overclock his Q6600 to 3.6GHz through Vista x64 with BIOS settings set to Auto.
