    off to "never ever" land
    basically dual channel is supported by the mobo .
    u dun get separate ram chips
    in this u use 2 identical ram chips in the colour coded ram slots on the dual channel supported mobo
    so say instead of using one 512 mb chip we use 2*256 mb ram chips ...
    this way we double the bandwidth used by the ram .. hence.... speedier ram ... therefore ... better performance ;)
    most new mobos support it .. not all tho
