Dual channel is a mode, not a type of memory. Dual channel configurations use the same memory as the single ones.

I think the OP meant will a dual kit work in a non dual config?

Same answer though. Yes.

Thanks for your reply. So it`ll be OK?
On another note, my motherboard homepage says `form factor micro ATX. Does that mean I need a micro ATX PSU?

No, it just means the motherboard is micro-ATX in size, you can install it with any power supply size you like and into any case thats micro-ATX or larger.

Is it easy to change PSUs?
I have 1 x SATA, 1 x PCIe 7600GT, 1 x dvdrw/cdrw, 1 x floppy, 2 x ddr2

All you have to do is take a few screws out and unplug the wires. Just make sure the new one has a SATA connector. And do the work with the case sitting on its side so the PSU doesn't fall and break something :)
