Dual channel RAM, Do you need two sticks?

Hey guys, I have just decided on which mobo i am going to buy - http://www.ebuyer.com/267114-gigabyte-ga-g41mt-s2p-g41-socket-775-ddr3-onboard-vga-7-1-channel-audio-matx-ga-g41mt-s2p?utm_source=google&utm_medium=products

And also on the ram i am going to get - http://www.ebuyer.com/226283-g-skill-4gb-ddr3-1333mhz-ripjaws-memory-module-cl9-9-9-9-24-1-5v-f3-10666cl9s-4gbrl?utm_source=google&utm_medium=product

My question is this, is states that it is dual channel memory. Does this mean that i need to have 2 or more sticks or will it run fine with just 1 stick?

Thanks in advance guys

  1. Thanks mate, And do you know if it will work with this mobo. And sorry i cant give you a best answer but i selected discussion by mistake :/
  2. buy two of those ram sticks unless you dont have 64bit, it will run faster then just one stick, i dont think you need 2 sticks for dual channel but i recommend it for better performance and ram is really cheap nowadays
  3. note. you will not be running in dual channel if you only have 1 stick
