A friend wants to upgrade his Dell machine to 4GB of RAM. He has an Intel q6600 processor on a Dell 0YU822 motherboard. Can you give me some advice on what RAM he should get for ~$100? I'm not sure what RAM he currently has, but I'm thinking he will need to buy 4GB because I doubt the RAM he has will work with other RAM, but correct me if I'm wrong. Keep in mind, he does play games.
However, I need to ask - what Operating System is he using? Only 64bit will make full use of 4gb RAM
How much RAM does he currently have? If he is on a 32bit Operating System then 2gb is all he really needs and will unlikely see much peformance gain from more.
