Dual Channel DDR and FS Performance.
A quick question for the tech gurus. I recently put a new motherboard in my computer which supports Dual-Channel DDR 400. In order to take advantage of it, do I need to have 2 sticks of ram? Right now, I have 1 stick of 512MB PC2700 RAM. Will I need another one to use Dual-Channel? And what effect, if any, will this have on both my flightsim performance and general computer performance?
