your mobo only has two ram slots right?
then it probably could, but it's not that big of a deal to run dual channel, slight performance increase.

??? dualchannel doubles the performance...regular 3200 memory runs at 3.2gb, dual channel 3200 runs at around 6gb per sec

thats if its Pc-3200, but still it's not that much Of a difference (maybe physically, but hardly noticable), yes things will run faster, but it's not absolutley Nessecary to have it!
