The Athlon 64 chipsets don't suppot dual channel as far as I know. I'd invest in some better memory modules, I've never even heard of a-data. Get a more well known brand like corsair, crucial, kingston, etc. I'd get corsair xms myself. Also, you are going to want more than 512mb of ram. 1GB is pretty standard now and you will need it if you plan on playing any new games.

Well, I've seen some disturbing reports of problems with that MSI mobo. Enough to make me worry? Don't know, but I'd search the forums first. The Athlon64 supports dual channel DDR, as does this particular mobo. BUT, there are conditions.

at MSI explains how to do it and what to use in the way of memory.
