Default Single sided vs Double sided RAM...quick q's...

Just some quick questions...

Is PC3200 400 mhz typicaly single-sided? Or can it be double sided sometimes?

Which is better? Single sided memory or Double sided? I am assuming single-sided, as I "THINK" it is newer technology. Is this like SIMM (Single in-line memory module) and DIMM (Dual in-line Memory Module)?

What makes a memory stick better or faster than the other is the cas latency, or how long it will take the memory to process the data. A cas latency of 3 means 3ms, while a memory with a cas latency of 2 (2ms) will process data 33% faster.
Regarding SIMM and DIMM, I believe the SIMM architecture has been abandonned because of it's poor rating compared to the DIMM modules.
