    I have a question about duel channel ddr. Do I have to buy special ddr moduals that support Duel Channel DDR? Or can I simply use normal 2700 ddr? I have heard that the moduals have to be paired and have to be the same size. I am going to be purchasing a Asus P4G8X Deluxe motherboard and I don't want to buy the wrong Ram. I appreciate any replys. Thanks

    You just need two of the same modules for each bank. I’m not sure PC2700 is worth the extra cash on a Granite Bay chipset – it is only rated for PC2100. I have read that the enthusiasts are tweaking the memory speed up on them. If you just want to plug it in get the PC2100. The 2700 will work fine, just at PC2100 speed unless you clock it – and I have no idea what sort of stability to expect overclocking the RAM on that board.

    If you can wait a couple of weeks the SIS 655 boards are just hitting the market. Reports are excellent and they support dual DDR 400 or PC3200 for P4. The boards that have been released have every bell and whistle known to computing and they should settle in cheaper than the Granite Bay boards once there is competition. Right now they are pricey.
