Question about new RAM with a new motherboard

Hello, I just recently bought this motherboard

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1882602

I'm upgrading from an old GIGABYTE motherboard with 4 GB(2x2GB) of RAM in it.

Would I be able to take the 2x2GB sticks out, install them in this motherboard along with this one stick of 4GB( http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=1412135&sku=C19-6131) for 8GB of RAM? Or should I just buy 2 sticks of the 4 GB RAM?

  1. I don't recommend trying 3 sticks of ram on a 4 slot motherboard; some won't post if you use the wrong slots; at least read the memory section of your motherboard manual first; If you can afford it, get the 2x4 gb kit of ram and sell the 4 gb on craigslist; you'll get about $22 for it. 8 gb is plenty.
