Just about everything you'll need to know about RAM is in this Tutorial
See the section titled Different types of RAM

Dual channel RAM vs single channel has mixed reports, for applications where the demand on RAM is high the dual channel mode is "suppose" to be faster, but when it was tested on games, it was found that in some cases the single channel actully ran faster.

The RAM industry has had feeding frenzy by selling "matched pairs" exclusively for dual channel opperation, so far it looks like they are the only winners.

The link below is for an article that will explain this further...if you're still awake.
