Re: dual channel vs triple, is there a thread?
RAM doesn't really affect "FPS." You would mostly notice its effectiveness in loading times, multitasking, multiple web apps running, etc.... don't go to town on RAM to make a gaming machine...
Skt 1156 has been proven a fine gaming platform for now and a year or two in the future. I am FAIRLY certain core i7-900 seriees+ are good for heavy CPU applications and/or BIG TIME crossfire (like two 5970s or gtxs 480s). So unless you are going big in GPU setups you won't really need to worry about ram for gaming applications as long as you have minimum 2 gigs with winXP and 3-4 with Vista/7.
