Manufacture Part# VS1GBKIT400

If you search other sites you see it is dual channel, but wouldn't it say there that it is? Wouldn't it say in the part number also?

More about : dual channel

Repeat after me........there is no such thing as dual channel memory.

It is the chipset/mobo that takes 2 sticks and assuming you put them in the correct slots, runs those memory modules in dual channel mode. The memory itself IS NOT DUAL CHANNEL, no such thing exists.

Having said that, what you linked will work in any dual channel chipset/mobo.

I would disagree with wusy in that matched pairs is a way to rip people off. The memory I got was cheaper going with teh matched pairs, than buying the 2 sticks seperate.

Rare...
Or you aren't looking on Froogle hard enough. :wink:

Don't froogle a whole lot. What I usually do is hit my 4 or 5 favorite sites and compare. (Zipzoomfly, newegg, monarch, digitallyunique, etc...)...From what I can see, the matched pairs are always cheaper....It is the whole "buy in bulk" mentality. Buy 1 for 100, but buy 2 for 190.

For example:
Single for 121:

Matched pair for 188 (also happens to include a 50 rebate so 138):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1682...

So tell me where in the heck you think matched pairs are a rip off. EVen with out the 50 rebate, 188 for matched pair kit or buy 2 singles for 242.

Hmm, perhaps you need to stop froogling and actually investigate on your own.
