Default question about dual-channel

i have a MBO that supports dual-channel for DDR and one module of kingston pc3200 1GB DDR. i want to buy another one and i'm interested in one thing: will any two memory modules work in dual-channel, or i have to get some special "dual-channel ready" memory modules?

I think that they both have to be of equal size.

No as long as the memory is the same size and speed it will, work fine. You might have to enable dual channel in you rbios but thats about it

No, they do not have to be "special dual-channel ready" modules. They can be any two matching sticks of memory.
