What is better, 2+1+4+1 = 8GB RAM (but clearly not in dual channel mode) or 2+1+2+1 = 6GB in dual channel mode. Would I get any benefits if I replace the 4GB stick with a 2GB just to have dual channel?

Remember though that dual channel mode is only obtainable with modules having same frequency, timings and latency.

Usually it would be best to use a pair or two same modules.

Am I correct in assuming this is DDR2?
