    I have the 17in 2.33 mbp I was wondering if 4gbs in it will mess up my processor or will it be ok. I know that it can only read 3 but I want dual channel. or does that not matter with graphic design and photos in raw

    Dual channel won't make a noticeable difference at all. And there would be no processor impact anyway :)

    OWC sells 2+1, but I was wondering if i bought a 2gb than the 1gb later would it be a matched pair. And would it make an difference.

    does 2 = 1? then no, its not a matched pair. Having 3 GB will disable dual channel, but it will be slightly, and i mean slightly faster than having 2 gb.

    How much RAM you have has no direct frying capability on the processor.
