Hi,

I want to upgrade my ram from 4 to 8gb. I'm looking at a CL6 set for about $90, or a CL4 set for $140. This upgrade is primarily for games. Will I notice any real difference for games between the two?

This is my current ram. My second question is, should I just buy one set of 4gb, and see if it works with my current ram before I purchase more?

No difference if you don't plan to overclock.

Don't mix voltages, don't mix timings/latency, don't mix frequency.

The motherboard supports "DDR2 (1200)/1066/800/667 memory". Does the 1066 vs 800 make a difference? Thank you so much for the help!

In gaming, no difference. Maybe other cpu intensive games.
