OK... so I am putting together an new system. I ordered 2x2Gb of RAM accidentally. I wanted to order 2x4Gb. I noticed the next day and contacted Newegg for an RMA, then ordered the 2x4GB. Both are the same, except for total size. Both sets will be here tomorrow... [See RAM Specs Below]
My Question is:Would I be better off returning the 2x2Gb [4Gb] and getting my money back?? Or, keeping all four sticks AND using all the slots at [12GB]?.. Will it work OK Together?? Does 12GB run Better Than 8GB with 2 different sizes?? [See RAM Specs Below]
I accidentally Ordered This: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
When I Really Wanted This G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Actually, 4 gb is ok for most tasks. Read your motherboard manual for ram configuration recommendations. The ram may run at the default settings, but don't ask for guarantees.
