Requirement to upgrade RAM?

Hey everyone,

As of right now I have 4 GB of RAM installed on my motherboard (2x2gb sticks)

I am going to upgrade soon, I am wondering if I can do this.

CHOICE A:

SLOT 1: PNY 2GB
SLOT 2: PNY 2GB
-----------------------Dual channel memory
SLOT 3: (other company brand) 4GB
SLOT 4: (Other company brand) 4GB


OR

CHOICE B:

SLOT 1: PNY 2 GB
SLOT 2: PNY 2 GB
------------------------Dual channel memory
SLOT 3: PNY 4 GB stick
SLOT 4: PNY 4 GB stick


CHOICE 3:
Or do I have to use PNY 2 GB sticks on my 3rd and 4th slot in order to work?


MY MOBO can handle 16 GB MAX. And I want 12 GB :O


*EDIT*

Sorry, forgot to add MOBO info.

ASROCK M3a770de MOBO, AMD based.

please tell which choice is the correct way to go., thank you

  1. It would be easier to answer your question if you told us a bit more about your motherboard (I presume it's an AMD based system) and the part number of each memory kit. Using very similar or identical PNY kits is less risky.
