  1. It will run at 1300 mhz, and its not even guaranteed to run togehter. If you want add memory its best to add as much as you want at once. Second best idea is to add the same kit as the original. Mixing different speed/timing kits has the least chance of a successful upgrade.

    another question then, i might want to run my system as a server at some points, if i make a server as a virtual machine, is the ram i use for it dedicated to that or can i utilise that ram when the server is not in use
  3. I'm not 100% certain but I think you can disable the VM and get all of your useable memory back relatively easily (think it requires a restart) It is not tied to the VM forever however.

    my dad wants to practice making servers on vm but i'm using as a gaming pc, so i might need to utilise most of the ram and he might need it for the vm so you can see my problem
  5. Is this for a home server? and if so for APPS or more as a data server?

    I can confirm it is a home server and i think it is mostly for APPS
  7. For an app server I'd want faster DRAM then 1333, DRAM will be in more constandt use than for a simple data server which uses DRAM as basically just a conduit
