Thread: dual channel 2x1GB

    I'm not sure if I'm right about this or not but, the amount as in MB doesn't reflect on the speed of the computer but more as the amount needed to run programs. Getting 1GB of RAMs is enough because any program you open will not use all 1024mb of RAMs. Even if you do video editing (highest RAM usage I believe for common home application), you wont use more than 700mb. Now, if you want amazing speed, you should look at timing of the RAMs with the the speed (PC2700 is 333mhz, PC3200 is 433mhz) which greatly reflects the speed of the RAMs. Now if you want to go a lot faster than that, you go to the next bottlenecking component which is the HDD. Everyone basicly have 7200rpm. Go get the 10000rpm for crazy speed.

    This is how I see the computer work. Please correct me if I'm wrong, especially about the speed of PC3200 RAMs.

    EDIT:
    Oh crap, I was responding to the last post on the first page. I didn't even see the second page. Oh well.

    It's a little older, but Abit's IS7 series boards are great. They have one (I think it's the IS7-V) that runs the single channel i848 chipset, not the i865PE. I have the IS7-E and it's a great board. Asus P4P800 (or the P4C800) are also supposed to be pretty good.
