I do not know what to do. I want to upgrade to a faster memory that is the same Mhz and the same pins as mine. Am I able to do so without any problems? Just a quick yes or no please!

List your system specs. What do you mean going to a faster memory that is the same Mhz as what you have now? If it's the same speed it will not be faster.

You will see very little if any real world gain going from say DDR2 667 to DDR2 800 or from DDR3 1333 to DDR3 1600. It really depends on your system.

Faster memory will make nearly no difference in tasks. You're better off upgrading the machine in a more meaningful way.

I have an alienware m15x 1333mhz ram at 2*2 Gb sticks, so 4 Gbs total. It is 204 pin ram the fell tech would not tell me much more than that and Im unreadable to 2 4Gb sticks because i only have four slots. Here are thru exact specs of the memory can be found here if this link dost work just go to and search for part number A3132535. Thank you all for your time and help.
