Hello,
I now have 2 - 1 gig sticks of PC3200 DDR400. I put them in slot 1 + 3. So now there running in dual channel mode. So how much more performance is there going to be? And will in improve gaming?

Thank you again.

tbh, i cant give you an honest answer about performance. of course, with 2GB of memory, you will see a performance boost. however i dont think youd be able to notice the difference between single channel and dual channel modes.

i will tell you that when you move over to dual channel mode, it theoretically doubles the bandwidth of the memory. where pc3200 memory normally provides roughly 3.2GBps of bandwidth, in dual channel mode, it will provide 6.4GBps of bandwidth (in theory). so, you may get a slight boost in gaming, but you probably wouldnt notice the difference.

however, it was a good purchase, as 2GB will soon become the norm.
