Benefits of dual channel vs single channel
Ok, I read the sticky on memory and it's deffinitions.. etc. However I don't know if I have a headace from reading it, or just lack of coffee today.
Here is my choice if I understand and remember to look at my new rig, this rig is for gaming, so either I go single channel for full capacity of 2gigs or dual channel for a max capacity of 1 gig.
What are the pros and cons?
If you would be so kind as to explain in a nutshell which is my best benefit?
