I recently got a Triple Channel set of ram and used it in my AMD machines. One machines uses 2 sticks (2X2GB) and the other machines has 3 sticks (2X1GB and 1X2GB) for a total of 4GB ram in each computer.

Is there a performance loss?

No, it is not noticeable.

But with a card like the 5870 and a 3.4 ghz processor I shouldn't really even need the extra ram right?
