I've been having major problems with RAM compatibility with my new A7N8X DLX rev 2 bios 1005 (as can be seen in my posts on this forum). The generic pc2700 with spectek chips caused occassional reboots and the Crucial pc2700 I bought to fix it caused reboots every 10 min. and tons and tons of errors in memtest86. Anyhow, I'm now RMAing the Crucial and going to go with either the pc3200 Kingston RAM that is on the asus recommended list or some Corsair XMS pc3200 which I think is also on the asus recommended list for my board. My question is, is it worth it to pay extra money for two sticks and use dual channel vs. just one stick of the same memory amount? I only really need about 512mb of memory right now and it seems that gettings 1 stick of 512 is always cheaper than 2 sticks of 256 of the same brand. So is the dual channel thing worth the extra money? I don't plan on overclocking or anything and I don't play any really hardcore games. What shoudl I do?
