I just ordered for a new build and when it arrived I noticed I ordered:
2 sets of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
I meant to order G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Don't know what I was thinking. Can I use the 4 4GB sticks, or since they are packaged seperately am I going to have an issue with matching?
If so, I'm wondering if I should even bother switching them for the 2x8GB. I game and do graphic design with Photoshop and 3dsMax, but I didn't know if I would even see a difference between 8 and 16. I could just keep 1 set of 2x4GB, and return the other. Thanks for any advice!
