Is the following installation correct to maintain dual channel?
Slot 1: 128 MB Dual Channel PC3200
Slot 2: 128 MB Dual Channel PC3200
Slot 3: 256 MB Dual Channel PC3200
Slot 4: 256 MB Dual Channel PC3200
Not knowledgable on dual channel....Does the setup above give me 384 megs or 768 megs of ram while running in dual channel mode that the OS sees?
If I understand dual channel, I am guessing that:
Single channel ram is like Christmas lights in series and dual channel is like a parallel setup.....is this analogy correct?
-I am asking this because a family member is purchasing a computer with 256 MB ram .....and I will be buying more ram separately because the upgrade price is much higher than what I can get for it at a place like Tiger Direct.
Thanks for your help
