    I don't think so really especially when ya consider that the KT333 is a step above those AMD760's that ya so fond of (the KT266A is more in the 760's playin' field) which will put the nForce2 way in front plus it overclocks fantastically.

    I guess Im just trying to see if Im better off looking for 2 matching sticks of 3200 or just stick with the 1 big stick.
    Hopefully the results everyone is getting will be consistent. Cuz if they arent it looks like the whole dual channel is not going to be worth it.

    I can't think of one either! :laugh:

    I hate it at work when I've minimized Windows Task Manager and the Tray Icon isn't bright green. It seems like something's wrong! Then I remember that it is only a 500MHz PIII and realize that it doesn't really matter. :cry:
    :-(

    Got a call today saying my RAM had just been sent, so I should see it in a day or two. I'll compare my current 512MB stick to 2 x 512MB Corsair for ya.

    OK, from some basic runs, going from 1 x 512MB stick to 2 x 512MB sticks, I've gone from an average of 2:50 to about 2:35 - 2:40. So whether that's due to twice the RAM or Dual Channel I'll leave up to you. :)

    I set them at 2-2-2-6 first time and left them. It's good enough for me.

    Well the extra memory wouldn't help as the program doesn't use much so ya difference is all in the dual channel operation but damn with that setup of ya's ya should be inside 2.5hrs. :smokin:
