Will mining performance suffer if I forgo dual-channel RAM and put just a single stick? I know system memory is considered inconsequential for mining, but I wondered if that might be taking it too far.

If it matters, I'm thinking about Intel's Sandy Bridge platform.

CPU mining is pointless these days, and a 5% increase in performance wouldn't change that.

Sorry, I meant of course GPU mining (say, 2 X 5870). The CPU still needs to tell the GPUs what to do.

Even still, memory is irrelevant.
