I currently have 2 x 2GB (G.Skill Trident F3-16000CL9D-4GBTD; 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM 2000; CL 9; 9-9-9-24; 1.65v) and want to add some more memory -- adding 4 GB bringing the total to 8GB.
My MB = GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H.
My CPU = AMD Athlon II X4 635 Propus.
What are the best options for adding the 4GB? I appreciate all the help I can receive. Those particular G.Skill sticks are no longer available, and I read about the "challenges" in mixing manufacturers, etc.
id ether try to find the same sticks if not buy new ram are you willing to buy new ram sticks?
Well of course I am trying to save a buck like anyone else ... I looked at NewEgg, where I bought the original setup, and those sticks are no longer available. Are the differences in manufacturer and/or model really that important? To the point where I just discard the existing memory?
Assuming that I find the budget increase, do you (or anyone) have suggestions for 8GB for that MB?
