Hi guys, i'm making a budget gaming rig and was wondering if there is a big difference in dual/triple channel ram when it comes to games. I'd love to save some money on cheaper dual channel ram if there isnt really much of a difference.

There isn't much of a difference. Toms did a review of single vs. dual-channel memory, and even that shows virtually no difference between single and dual-channel memory modes. Find it among the articles.

just get some really nice DDR2 ram. i saw some benchmarks and apparently the only way to see the difference between Dual and Tri channel is with synthetic benchmark programs. Im running some DDR2 1066 and i don't notice a difference in game play with my friends DDR2 800, when i play the same games on his rig.
