I was wondering, i recently bought a 512mb stick of ram and the guy told me it was dual channel (its only 1 stick).. I bought the stick anyway because my ram exploded on me the day before and didn't want to wait, but i was under the impression that dual channel memory is 2 sticks... is that true?

You sir, are correct! Dual Channel requires 2 sticks. Perhaps the guy meant DDR, you know how confused these salespeople can be!
