Win7 RAM upgrade help/questions - Help? Tags: Asus Windows 7 RAM Motherboards Product Last response: October 17, 2009 2:08 PM in Motherboards Share Shankopotamus October 16, 2009 9:31:19 PM I am upgrading my PC for the upcoming Windows 7 release. Currently, I have two, 1 gig sticks of this ram - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... My motherboard is the P5B Deluxe Wifi AP. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would like to upgrade with this RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Now - my question is, do I simply just replace the old ram to make 4 gigs? Or do I just put the new ram in the yellow slots (where old ram was) - and put the old ram in the black slots to create a total of 6 gigs?

There's just -so- much excess information when I google something like this. reconviperone1 October 17, 2009 12:18:33 AM Just add the new ram, but make sure it's the same speed brand as the 2 1gb sticks, for 6gb total goodness, this is the memory you want, enjoy. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks for the advice! So, it has to be the same brand? Didn't know that. I've read some things about the yellow or black slot... Do you know anything about that? Put the more powerful sticks in the yellow? Weak in the black? reconviperone1 October 17, 2009 1:07:54 AM No that just keeps it dual channel, the memory sizes have to go in corresponding slots, i.e the 2 2gb in one color and the 2 1gb in one color, so you can just add the 2 2gb to the empty slots. Shankopotamus October 17, 2009 1:38:45 AM Thanks a bunch. I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive. Used to be a lot cheaper.... reconviperone1 October 17, 2009 2:08:14 PM Yeah, i got 4gb of 1066 back in the summer for 45 bucks, a year and a half before that i payed 200 dollars for 2gb ddr 800, so it's not to bad, and worth the investment, im running 8gb, and it's nice.
