Default installing memory help, noob question

hey, i've got a question about installing memory onto my motherboard. My motherboard is EVGA Nforce 750I SLI Ftw - - Buy EVGA Nforce 750I SLI Ftw LGA775 ATX DDR2 2PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 2PCI SATA RAID Sound GBLAN Motherboard - 123-YW-E175-A1 In Canada., and my memory is Corsair XMS2 Dominator TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF 4GB 2X2GB - - Buy Corsair XMS2 Dominator TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF 4GB 2X2GB PC2-8500 DDR2-1066 CL5-5-5-15 240PIN Memory Kit - TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF In Canada..

my question is can i put the 2 sticks of memory beside each other? or do i put one stick in the first slot and skip the second slot and put other stick into the third slot?

Put them in the Dual Channel Slots for more performance, consult the 750i FTW manual to see which ones are the Dual Channel slots (same color or same sides) most of the time its same Colors (which are different sides)

EDIT: from the eVGA manual its same color
