I just recently upgraded my memory from having 4 value 256mb ram to having dual channel 1 gig of OCZ platinum rev2. I thought it would make a difference but it didnt. Let me know if it should have. Thanks.

Did you put the RAM in the right slots? Usually dual-channel is run when the RAM is in slots 1 & 3.

Well there are four slots. Two are blue (right next to eachother) and the other two are black(also right next to eachother). I put both of them in the blue. I right click on my computer, then properties, and it says i have 1 gig.

You should be able to get tighter timings out of your RAM. Also check to ensure that you're BIOS set your command rate back to 1T instead of 2T.

Do benchmarks before and after to gauge you're performance increase.
