Exclamation RAM Channels

I was reviewing some memory benchmarks, and apparently there is less than a 3% increase when using dual channel in 3DMark as apose to single channel. I noticed that dual channel has quite the increase with SiS Sandra, etc., but why not with games?

Is it worth switching from 754 to 939 just to get the dual channel feature?

Can someone verify that there is little to no increase in games? I only use my rig for gaming, so if there is no difference between the two, then I am going to stick with my 754.

Thx everyone!

P.S. Is it true that memory cannot be overclocked as much in dual channel?

games don't rely so much on memory transfer speed. they rely mostly on CPU and GPU performance

the main differences RAM makes to games is the loading times
