  1. Crucial or Corsair is good. Check the name of your ram you have now? Make sure you use matched pairs.

    Crucial is extremely reliable. I love Corsair and Patriot as well. Mushkin...... Nope. Kingston, yes, but not as fancy :D

    If you're in for gaming, feel free to grab some lower latency Ram. 7-7-7-20 is pretty good.

    First off I'm going to need the timings and voltage for your own current RAM, because you can only have a set of similar latencies and voltages.


    I'm currently running a set of these: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5546849&CatId=4524

    and I plan to get another set to up to 8gb. They work perfectly, love them.

  4. I like Corsair. I assume you have 2x2GB and you can get 2x4GB to add to it. With an older AMD Athlon x2 system, it came with 2x512MB and I added 2x1GB, getting me 3GB dual-channel. It should work the same for you. btw G.Skill is also good, I've used them a little, though I have more experience with Corsair.
