Hello, I am looking at newegg and they are having free 8GB of ram with select motherboards, but its only 1 8GB stick of ram, how much of a performance loss is that to 2 4GB sticks of ram in dual channel?

Thanks!!!

You could run 3 sticks, but your mobo will match the cas latency to the slowest one.
