More about what difference dual single channel
  1. spend 30 seconds and ready the already 4 frikin dual channel topics in the main memory forum.
  2. Dual channel offers increased bandwidth, DDR2 runs at higher latencies than 'standard' DDR but runs at higher frequencies.
  3. Somebody posted this article some days ago.

    That should do the trick :D

    Also, please look around before posting, it's getting spammy.
