Jun 27, 2013, 3:21 PM
I have only 1 RAM slot for my motherboard in which i have 4gb DDR3. I want to upgrade it to 16gb. Is it possible in the market to get 1x16gb RAM?
Is it advisable to keep 1x16gb RAM in one slot.

you need to know what board you have. then you need to go to the board manufacturers site and look to see what speed ram and how much ram you can put on it. 16gb won't be it.
