Right now I have 4 sticks of 1gb each in my computer. I want to upgrade to 8gb of ram. I do not know the best way to do this. Would I be able to buy two 4gb sticks and then have 10gb total? I am unsure how this would work, I have never upgraded ram before. thx.

Using different RAM sticks usually causes issues, it's best to buy two 4GB sticks and just leave the old RAM unused.

+1 (and get both sticks in a single package, don't buy two singe sticks to save a couple dollars, a 2 stick package is guaranteed that both will play together)
