Hey guys I need a bit of help finding the proper RAM. I currently have 2 512MB sticks of single sided dual channel DDR 3200 and that is what I want to add to have a total of 2GB. The problem is finding single sided dual channel DDR, I don't really think the RAM has to be dual channel since the motherboard decides whether it runs in single or dual channel. I ordered the exact same part number as I currently have from New Egg, which is Kingston RAM, and they sent me double sided RAM which won't work. I prefer to stick with Kingston since they have a lifetime warranty but right now I just want to find 2 sticks of 512MB single sided DDR 3200.

Does anyone know where I can find what I need?

P.S. My local supplier can't get it either.

Yeah, and that's what I went by to order the new RAM but it seems Kingston now has changed the model number from single sided to double sided, makes no sense.
