It's cheap and efficient. Buy this if you're replacing your old RAM set with 8GB of RAM. It lacks heat spreaders, but in reality, your RAM doesn't get too hot enough for the heatspreaders to actually be effective.

if you want 4GB more of RAM, go with the RAM you have previously:

and just add the 2 sticks in with the RAM already there (since you have 4 slots and you only have 2 slots filled) and therefore you get 8GB of RAM
