And about the Single Channel RAM you guys mentioned, should it be set to something else?
Ya, usually on mobos like yours, if you have 2 similar sticks of RAM, they will run in dual channel mode, which allows for a little more data transfer to and from the RAM. Dont worry too much about it, as the performance increase is very little.
If you do want to run your RAM in dual channel, and you might as well, check your mobo manual to see which DIMM slots need to be filled on your mobo to make the RAM run in dual channel. Yours will probably be 1 and 3 or 2 and 4 (Put one stick of RAM in slot 1 and the other in 3).
There is also a BIOS setting that you might have to enable once the RAM is in the correct slots. The BIOS setting will actually say, "Dual Channel Enabled" or something to that effect, so it will be easy to find.
Like I mentioned, If you cant get dual channel to work, then dont worry about it as it only gives about 1% to 4% performance increase
