That motherboard has two RAM slots -- and I have 2x1gb and 1x2gb, I need atleast 3 slots
I already told you it has only 2 ram slots. It's apparent to me your really clueless about hardware considering your running your memory in single channel mode and not dual channel mode like your supposed to be.
Well, I strongly urge you get off your high horse. This is a forum for users to receive help on issues as such, not a place where users are insulted for lack of knowledge in an area. I had already seen your post before replying to it. How am I supposed to know what I should be doing, if people like you come onto this forum and don't explain what's right from wrong? It's your option to be here and reply to these threads, if it irritates you so much to a point where you feel the need to point at my weakness in this area, then stop replying.
More over, you've attempted to slap me in the face, how far has that gotten you today?
I tried to help you by getting you an inexpensive replacement board not of the "open box" variety.
I also pointed out with your platform, your supposed to be running your ram in dual channel mode for best performance, YOUR NOT, your running in single channel mode. Sorry the truth bothers you so much.
Your best bet would be go with the G41 and ditch some of the ram. With that setup as far as gaming goes the other 2gb isn't really doing you much good anyways, you would be better off running 2gb in dual channel mode than 4gb in single channel mode. Besides, I'm betting your running a 32bit OS which doesn't even recognize 4gb anyways.
This will keep you up and running until you decide to upgrade your pc.
the way you explained it was plain rude, if someone's doing something wrong, do it properly; calling someone clueless isn't motivation for them to come back to a forum if this is the type of community support they'll be receiving. learn how to communicate effectively, in an non-insulting manner. if you want to continue this pointless bout, pm me.
