Hey guys, I'm going to be upgrading to windows 7 home premium or professional (64-bit) from xp home premium and I was thinking i'd be needing more RAM as windows 7 is more RAM intensive than XP.
My system is:
Athlon II X4 620 @ 3.2GHz
Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H mobo
2 x 2GB Corsair XMS2 Twin pc6400 C5
OCZ 600W Modular PSU.
Hitachi Deskstar 500GB HDD
My motherboard can only run ddr2 ram, but it's so expensive now and I don't want to be spending a lot on RAM, so i only want 2 x 1GB sticks. Will this work with my other RAM & motherboard, as long as i pair them properly in the slots?
YEp - just be sure to get modules that are rated the same voltage and either the same or better timings and latencies as the old modules ( all of the modules on a system can only run at a single voltage and the timings are also set universally so the new modules must match or better the old ones in order to run at the proper settings without issues!!)
