Apparently, there is only one stick, so it's not dual channel. People said that my performance would be better with 2 sticks of 1gb... is that right? is it okay if I just got one 2gb DDR3 1333Ghz VALU-RAM?

I've never had experience with Adata, so I couldn't tell. It was just something to help him save cash. I'll take good note of that ; )
Good! Awesome. I'll try to get that. I asked the person if it was one stick or two sticks, and he replied with....
"1 x 2gb stick, so it is one stick of 2gb. Other stick went bad on me. This one was fine through memtest86. I just went and updated my ram to faster ram. The picture was only one i could find of the memory. Sorry for the deception. If you still want it let me know."
I asked him if he could bring it down to $40 buy-it-now. (It was $35 starting bid with no bids, and $45 buy-it-now) I think I'll ask him to bring it down to $35 because it's only one stick. ; )
