  1. just a quick question I am building a pc for my g-kids and son/daughter-in-law
    for christmas, I want him to be able to play BF2 with me so I am building a gamer/surfer, not a super gamer but a decent one, the mobo has dual or single channel ram support, I got a great deal on a 1 gig stick of pc2700
    2.5 cl now my question is will he still get the same preformance that he would of if I had got 2 sticks of 512?and set it on dual channel, as he will with 1 stick using single channel, either way he still has 1024 mb of ram.

    thx meth

    On intel systems dual channel makes more difference in performance. So, 2x512mb would be faster, but 1 x1gb will work fine. You could get another 1gb stick and have dual channel and 2gb(I hear bf2 is a ram hog), and then it would be pretty good.
