6GB single channel or 4GB dual channel?


Recommended Posts

im buying a Intel i5 750 with mainboard Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3 and a new ATI 5800 series.


for memory, I have thought about CM3X2G1600C9DHX 2x2GB dual channel.


Question is, would be a good idea to get some 3x2GB kit instead? I know i5 doesnt allow triple channel so they will run as single channel. Will 6GB single channel be a waste?


The rig will be used for movies and gaming, OS = Windows Se7en. I usually use around 3-3.5GB of RAM so maybe 4GB is a little bottleneck?
