    Dual channel memory running 2 sticks of RAM side by side to theoretically double the memory bandwidth. Its easy to accomplish as well! Just stick 2 sticks of RAM in separate channels on a motherboard that supports Dual-DDR and off you go!
    (This usually means put one in the 1st or 2nd ram slot and the other in the 3rd or 4th ram slot )

    SATA is faster on paper, but realistically they are pretty much the same speed.
    The benefits with SATA (at the moment) are mainly the smaller, thinner cables.

    True, but if you use a SATA RAID setup on a Intel 875/865 mobo with a ICH5R southbridge you get much better performance than anything other than SCSI.
