No it doesn't just that triple channel is faster but not by much

Wow ! Lots of stuff to check out for me!
Thanks so much, guys ! I appreciate your help!

I will most likey order/buy my PC from this site:

Basisonderdelen bij MyCom

I do think they have a good choice of parts.
What do you guys say?

And what do you think of the PC part-list I posted a few posts back:

* RAM: DDR3-RAM: 3072MB DDR3-1333 Corsair/Kingston/Infineon (original)/A-DATA
* OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition
* DVD-Writer: Plextor PX-820SA; SATA (DVD-R(W), DVD+R(W); DVD-RAM; Dual-Layer)
* Keyboard,mouse: Logitech or Microsoft Optical Wheel Mouse USB an keyboard
* hard disc: 3 pieces: Seagate Barracuda 500GB (32MB [!!] Cache; SATA; 5years warranty); 2 HDs set up in RAID-0

* power supply: Corsair HX-520W
* Processor: Core i7-920 2,66GHz 8MB Cache In-A-Box


It is from a German site, so I translated the parts that needed translation, I hope it makes sense.

What do you guys think of this rig?
It costs 1530 Euro which is about 1960 US$.

Is it a good price?

I could also change things, it's fully customizeable, this is just one of their ready-to-go offers.

If I should change anything, what would you suggest I change?
