I always wondered... do you have to get memory that is specifically sold for dual channel or si the only requirement be that they are exactly the same?

To run dual channel you need modules of the same size, make (more specifically same ICs), and speed. Those dual channel kit things are just an advertising ploy.

most duel channel memory comes with a stick(forgot what's it called) so it allows u to install only one mem-stick at a time
That's all dependant on the mobo. My board you use 1&2 or 3&4 for dual channel kits. Just wanted to clear that up so that some unspecting person doesn't blindly throw there ram in dimm 1&3 and wonder why it's not running at 128-bit.
