    Sorry this has probably been asked a lot of times, I would like to know is there a noticeable difference between Dual Channel DDR3 & Tri Channel DDR3 memory? I know one is 4GB & the others 6GB but that doesn't bother me, i just want to know if there is any worthwhile performance benefit going for the TRI over the DUAL. I understand they can pretty much clock to the same Speeds and Latency.

    Help appreciated,
    Thanks.

    While triple chan will put up ~30-40% higher bandwidth in RAM benchmarks... theres very few if any actual applications that show any more than 0.5% difference between the 2.
