2 gig stick that plays well with others

Yeah.

I have three gigs in all.

I wanna replace my Samsung 1 gig with a two gig stick to have 4 gigs in all.
My two gig stick is Kingston.


What two gb sticks work well with other brands?

It needs to be ddr2 800 ( to match the kingston)


Any help? :hello:

  1. How many sticks do you have in total? the best thing to do would be buy a stick of matching brand and speed of the stick in the other slot that corresponds to it.
  2. Using now?
    Only two.
    I would like to use another kingston but if I see something cheaper would it work well two?

    ( is currantly using mismatch brand ram but of same speed )
  3. It's usually safer to use two ram sticks of the same manufacturer, speed and size in their corresponding slots.

    But you should be alright with a different brand if it's cheaper. I've run mismatched (brand wise) ram before and had no issues.
  4. You should be ok as long as you match size, speed, cas latency and voltage. If you are not exactly sure what you have then a program like CPU-Z or Speccy will tell you.

  6. Though I agree with what he's saying. I can see that being a pain in the butt, and at that point it being easier just to buy the exact same stick of RAM as the one you already have.

    Exactly........Since no model number was posted, OP may not know the exact RAM in the computer and CPU-Z and Spezzy will tell exactly that. Manufacturer, voltage, cas, speed ........a lot easier to match when you know all those things.
  8. now I know exactly

    Kingston ddr2 800 1.8v
