Is unganged and ganged memory the same thing as single and dual channel memory?

I've read that unganged memory is better because it utilizes both 64-bit interfaces at the same time, while ganged uses 1 shared 128-bit interface, allowing more flow of memory, but not at the same time.

Should the RAM be placed in seperate channels on the motherboard or in the same channel?

I have a Phenom II x4 965 with an Asus M4A88TD-V Evo motherboard and 2x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR3-1333.

Yes, Unganged is better, but can sometimes cause problems so then Ganged needs to be used. Then there's the Apps, single threaded = Ganged, Multi-Threaded = Unganged. The differences are very small in either case.

Yes use separate channels to avoid problems or in other words Dual Channel configuration per the manual which in your case is A & B or Blue + Blue or Black + Black.
