Default Dual Channel RAM and an abit mobo

i am possibly going to purchase some pc4000, heres the link:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-011&depa=0
its cheap and ive read good reviews. my question is, if i buy 2 of those will they work in dual channel? im pretty sure they will but im just making sure.

also, im planning to buy a new mobo, the Abit IC7 Max 3.
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-158&depa=0
ive read good reviews but does anyone else have a better idea for a sick overclocking mobo? i have a 3.0c with the sp-94 hs, and i keep the case open with a fan blowing in so i expect extreme perfomance from this baby. 4 ghz++

EDIT: also does anyone know the perrformance increase of dual channel?

Oh... wow. From what I'd heard the performance increase for dual channel was only about 6-7%,
Thanks a lot for checking whether the RAM was compatible, I think I found the Abit page you found, never knew those kind of compatibility tests existed there. Anyways, the Kingmax RAM they tested was PC3200 rather than the pc4000 that I'm planning to get, but I think they'll still work, I'll try it and see once I get the money together to buy it.

My performance increase for Dual Channel is quite a lot... haven't got the figures but it was something like 50% more bandwidth under memtest86.

dual channel should theoretically be double the band width because there are twice as many paths that information travels on
