  1. Sorry, but the max RAM is ->> Maximum Memory 4GB

    This is what u can have, since the best is to have matched RAM, but u shouldn't do that if u don't have x64bit windows. Do u have?

  2. I have 64 bit windows
  3. OK, but your mobo can use only 4GB max.

    If u want to get 4GB RAM, u need to get 2 GB RAM stick, and it will be best,

    if it is exactly the same one.
  4. That´s the Memory upgrade information for your motherboard:

    Dual channel memory architecture
    Two DDR3 DIMM (240-pin) sockets
    Supported DIMM types:
    PC3-8500 (DDR3-1066)
    PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333)
    Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
    Supports 2GB DDR2 DIMMs
    Supports up to 4 GB on 32 bit PCs

    The ram nikorr recommended you is the best you can get, so go for it!
  5. I understand that but it says "Supports up to 4gb on (32bit)" i have 64 bit shouldnt i be able to have more ram?
  6. 2GB per slot max.

    You have 2 slots only.

    So max is 4 GB.

    Your mobo would not recognize anything above 4GB, even with x64bit system.
