There is no difference between dual channel memory and regular memory. What dual channel memory refers to is that is you have to identical memorysticks, a motherboard and a memory controller that supports dual channel memory, then you can accsess both memorysticks at once, doubling your memory bandwidth. Having two memory slots does not automatically mean you have support for dual channel memory.
