Good evening, I am about to buy a 12 GigaByte Ram for my pc.

My motherboard supports DDR3, triple channel Ram. I don't know these things really well and I would appreciate if you are able to suggest me the best solution for my needs.

I use my PC mainly for gaming and I see that the 3 GigaByte Ram I already have is not enough.

I'm about to buy the Ram from this site because it gives me the best prices in my country, Greece.

http://www.skroutz.gr/c/56/mnhmes-pc-ram/f/46388/12GB.h...

I can't afford more than 120 Euro.

So please suggest me from the link I gave you. Thanks.

Whats your old RAM model?

Its best if all the RAM sticks are the same, especially the voltage.

That way, you minimize the incompatibility problem.

And that's my problem . I can't choose , beacause there are too many rams available and everything seems the same to me .

There isn't any performance improvement to be made with any of the listed RAM's sets.

U wanna reliable RAM. Period.

It is pretty much all the same : )

For more performance, get an SSD drive,

that will give the biggest kick in the performance field. Unless u already have one.

No, u will not damage it. Unless it would be uncompatible.

Mobos are build to deal with it. They downclock to the lowest speed of any inserted RAM stick.

At worst, it will not boot. Than u could just remove the added stick and be fine.

You could try reset the CMOS memory the right way as is described in the motherboard manual using the clear CMOS link with the power cord unplugged.
And when the battery is out, press the power button to discharge all the electricity from the system.
