Hello, I would like to add a 2GB memory card to my pc, to get 8GB total.
My rig is:
CPU: Intel core i7 950 3.07 GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte X58A UD3R
Memory: Kingston 3X2GB (6GB) DDR3 1600MHZ
Video card: Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB oc windforce.
PSU: Seasonic S12II-620 620W

I was told that I should buy the same memory card as I already have in my pc, is it true? and will it work with 4 stick of memory cards on this motherboard?
link: (I think that's the one)

Thank in advance! :)

Memory sticks should be same manufacturer, same model with same specs (Voltage, frequency, timings etc.)

Best for a full set, as mixing sticks can be problematic, but if you do go another single stic, would try in slots 1,2,3,4 (from CPU) that will ensure them running in dual channel, and if any problems with them playing together, give me a shout, can prob get them to play w/ minor voltage/timing adjustments.

I'd personally prefer 2x4GB sticks if you have the money as it would be a lot cleaner.
