    I am upgrading memory in a Dell Dimension 3000 which is still running XP with just one pc3200 256MB stick. It supports dual channel. Would a single 1GB perform better vs 2 X 512 dual channel? Thanks!

    Most likely it will perform better when the pair is installed. See Crucial.com - Dimension 3000 for more information.

    Potentially better performance with the dual channel...but will it ever be noticable? Probably not but ya never know; the biggest performance leap by far is going from 256 MB to 1 GIG.
