The more ram is always better and you could always put heatsinks on the ram and overclock the 2700 to 400mhz. Also for Dual Channel you have to have 2 Registered sticks(came in same package that says registered) of the same kind of ram. So if you want a gig of ram you need to have 2x512 registered ram. For 2 gig you need 2x1gig registered ram and so on. You shouldnt worry about DC ram right now though.

The processor has nothing to do with whether a motherboard supports dual channel memory or not.

when you get to levels of greater than 1 GB it really doesnt make a difference if you add any more just now. maybe in the future but not just now. but i would say that you would get better performance from 1 GB of PC3200 rather then 2 GB of PC2700, just now. that is just an opinion and im sure lots of people will disagree.
