As to whether the extra ram will help you, only you can answer that. Does your memory show that it's being all used? Do you have delays while windows is writing to the swapfile? If so, then the extra ram can help. If not, then the extra ram won't do anything for you. As to the memory itself, that's not a good match. You w3ant an exact match to your original memory.
And they cost the same as the ones you quoted for twice the amount of RAM. 70$
It's pretty logical, 70$ for 3 X 2GB of RAM or
70$ for 3 X 4GB of RAM......
RAM........... is like something else in this world, enough is never enough. It's always great to have lots and lots of RAM, the more the merrier. And especially if it could be squeezed into a tight budget, every Bit of RAM is worth the Cent you spend on it, it's like collecting a dollar with the help of Cents everyday..... as kids, it's like a piggy bank..... so yes , it's worth it.... and if you get a good price for the 3 x 2GB modules you could opt for another 3 X 4GB same kit and make it 24GB of RAM, enough to last you 5 Years.....more.....
Well first off while it might be a good idea to get the 3x4 gb there are actually 2 reasons why I'm not.
1) i got a 30$ deal for the 3x2 gb sticks
2) I'm only looking for an upgrade not a replacement.
Also I'm mainly looking for an answer of if it's possible/efficient instead of suggestions to go with a different setup. I'll be sure to keep buying a 3x4 setup in mind though. Didn't think you could find them that cheap.
It's like Pot Luck, when you try mixing RAMs.... especially sets, that why the suggestion.
An upgrade could mean anything...... adding more stuff in the rig is increasing it's capacity and not upgrading, removing stuff holding you back from further upgrades and replacing it with more compatible stuff is upgrading actually ( In short- increasing it's life with time)
Like I said it's possible , like pot luck, and, efficient, only if you plan on utilizing that big an amount of RAM , other wise 6-8 GB usually is efficient enough for half the world.
