Upgrading RAM

Last response: in Memory

I'm upgrading my ram but I'm not sure which direction to go. I already have 4 gigs and a 64 bit operating system, but I'm planning on going to 8gigs.
So my question is if I want to upgrade, do I need to get sticks with the same speed or brand? Or can I just buy any random stick add it?

Thanks for the help

I would try and stick with the same brand and model...if you mix RAM the voltages may be different causing a problem.

Why are you upgrading your RAM? Are you using professional programs or rendering massive pictures? If not then you do not require more then 4GB of RAM spend the money on something else as it is a waste of money.

+1^ 4 gig is more than enough for 95% of the average users out there.
