    Many thanks for that..i meant to say i have a single stick of 4gb...would it be worthwhile getting another to go dual channel ?

    ^^ Dual channel is definitely preferred, particularly when overclocking. But it wont make a significant difference. But ram sticks are cheap enough where it would be justified, just be sure to get the same stick(but not required).

    Did you buy it as a single stick?

    It's probably worth it to have dual channel but I never tested and can't tell you for sure. As RAM-dependent as the IGP is, it's probably a safe assumption that it will help at least a little bit.
