Well, as it says in the title:
Is single channel 1gb as good as dual channel 2*512 mb.

I have tried to add memory to my mobo, but something went wrong and now my mobo only sees the first memory module. Really, I've tried everything and now I give up to return to normal life until I buy a new system.

So at first I had 2 * 512 mb memory at 800 mhz, dual channel.
Now I have 1* 1g memory at again 800 mhz, but single channel.

So is that ok, or is running at single channel much inferior to dual channel, even if I have the same amount of memory?

update: I still had 3 weeks warranty for my system (man am I lucky or what) so I brought my pc to the store and they told me that my memory controller was to the smithereens. So I'm getting a new mobo for free. :bounce:

Thnx for all your help!
