Errr.. not exactly. Dual channel doesn't mean 2*Speed. But Dual Channel means a broader pathway.2* 1Gig 667 in dual channel = 2*667 = 1333 mhz ram of 2 gig ram
2gb single stick 800 mhz = 800 mhz of 2 gig ram .. .
decide whats better.
Errr.. not exactly. Dual channel doesn't mean 2*Speed. But Dual Channel means a broader pathway.
Lemme try to explain it this way:
Consider that 40kg of load is to be transported by 2 cars, each hafing capacity of carrying 20kg load (arbitrary). Car1 runs at 800kmph and Car 2 at 667kmph.
In single channel, only one car can run at a time. So Car1 carries 20kg at a time running at a speed of 800kmph. Then does it for the second time.
In dual channel, both cars can run simultaneously. But the speed of both the cars (Car2) is only 667kmph (as compared to 800kmph for Car1). So both cars can carry 20kgs and run together, albeit at a lower speed.
I hope the single/dual channel confusion is cleared

Not exactly, the load sharing e.g was just given to simplify things. The bandwidth (capacity) of both differs. So practically if the load carrying capacity of 800kmph car is 20kg then for 667kmph car its 15kg (thats what the 5300 in PC-5300 for DDR2 667 and 6400 in PC-6400 for DDR2 800 represent )thanks for correcting me. ..i think thats equivalent to what i said if the data is distributable . . in this example of load. . if the 40kg can be split into 2*20kg and 2 cars run at the same time , its equivalent to one car carrying 20kg at twice the speed , rite ?
Yep, when you compare RAMs with same speed then your theory is perfectok . .for simplicity lets assume 2gb ddr 800mhz vs. 2x1 gb ddr 800mhz .. .then will my theory hold good ?
Get the highest speed memory for better performance and bandwidth.If cpu and motherboard both run at 1333FSB, what should be speed of memory? 667 or 800?

All the newer C2D E6x50 and E8x00 run at 1333mhz fsb.1333 fsb with 667 ram gives good result. .but 800 ram will slightly improve it . . but are u really going to keep that fsb at 1333 mhz ?
Gigabyte 780G AM2+ mobo: 4.6k or Asus M2N VM DVI: 3.2k
X2 4800+: 3.6k or 5600+: 4.3k
1G DDR2 667: 0.9k
780G has best IGP with DX 10 supports nd performs better than 7300GS stndalone card.
All the newer C2D E6x50 and E8x00 run at 1333mhz fsb.
^^^ I'm sorry, I didn't get you. You mean to say OC the RAM to 1333mhz?
