Hi there,
I am planning on adding another 2gb stick of ram onto my current 6gb. Does it matter which manufacturer the 6gb of ram is from (Corsair, in this case) and can I just put any other manufacturers ram in my pc?
Thanks a lot

I would advise that you add the exact same RAM. Trying to mix RAM often leads to stability issues.

Use exact the same memory module or its an invitation for trouble.

What is your MoBo configuration ?

If you have a 3 x 2GB kit, your gonna wanna add it so A1, A2, B1 and C1 slots are used......but check your manual to see if your MoBo complies with this convention.
