yes. your processor is tri channel, not dual.

HOWEVER, you can get enough dual channel kits to get six sticks total and run them all in tri channel.

Unless you do any heavy encoding or CAD you wont see any benefit over 4Gb so triple 6gb is what i would so with.

PS ref above, the processor/motherboard can still run in single, dual or triple channel.
