    Default Dual Channel?

    Is it a good idea to get a 3200+ Barton chip and a mobo that supports dual channel? Will I notice a different in gameplay and such?

    You'll get a 4-5% improvement with dual channel unless you multi-task then the improvement can go as high as 13-14%.

    You'll notice a slight real-world boost, if anything.

    So it would help with multitasking a bit, okay.

    is it worth going from an AMD Athlon XP 1800+ to a barton 2500+?

    What about as opposed to a 3200+?
