    Can anyone give me simple explanation of the dual channel / triple channel memory types. I am currently thinking of building a system based on Phenom II x4 955 and the Gigabyte MA790 XT UD4P modo.

    I am confused about memory I think I need DDR 3 but this channel thing puzzles me.

    I intend to use Win 7 so am thinking about 4gb. Any advice

    4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory
    Support for DDR3 1666(OC)/1333/1066 MHz memory modules

    So yeah, like that one in siumatfung's link,
    or those if you fancy lower timings for £7 more. :)
