Dual bank is different t dual DDR.

That means there are two banks in each stick, most modern memory is like this.

Somechipsets have a limitation of how many banks they can address... specifically intel ones that although they have more than two memory slots you can only use four banks.... so nornally only two reasonably big sticks..

Dual memory controlers are a different matter.

"what should I assume? that both dual and single channel are working simultaneously? "

Pretty much... if your using more than 512mb you will get a mix of dual and single usage as the smaller stick drops data and is refilled..

On a game like mafia I doubt you will use more than 512mb very often and even when you do you wont take much (if any) of a performance hit by running 256+512
No longer Epox Tech.

Best of luck in the future all my friends.
