    Does anyone know if anyone makes this, plus it needs to have agp not pci-e. My current mobo from Gigabyte has four, but it only goes up to 3200xp
     
  2. 3 is the max you can get for 754 i checked abit, asus and msi they all have 2 or 3 slots for the 754 sockets

    Dual channel allows the system to access BOTH banks of RAM at the same time, in multi tasking and large applications that span both banks access is improved. However thereis only a minor performance increase in single task applications.

    The data path is 64 bits wide.
