Default Should i buy Dual Channel Kit ram or 2 identical rams?

im trying to buy a 1gb memory stick on ebay. I understand for desktop PCs, I need unregistered, non-Ecc, unbuffered, low density ram. but if I want to run dual channel, would I need to buy memories in a specific dual channel kit packet? or can I just buy 2 of the same identical ram that doesn't state itself as a kit?

You can run two of the same RAM sticks but unless you're getting a good deal on that one stick, it's usually cheaper to just get a dual channel kit.
