My p5b deluxe wifi motherboard is dual channel.I am going to install 1 gb ram . I see kits or sets of 2/512. Is this the better way to go with a dual channel or would it make no difference if I installed a single stick of 1gb. I seem to have heard that these sets are for dual channel. Thanks.
Yeah, think about the future when doing this. Currently I only have 1gb of ram in one stick but in the next month or two I can just grab a second one. If your motherboard supports 2gb or more I'd just get the single stick if I were you.
Yes, but what we're saying is that if you go 2x512mb now instead of 1x1gb future upgrades are going to be more expensive. I recommend you do 1x1gb now and work your way up to 2x1gb over time when you get another $100 to blow on ram.
