Its cheaper and i dont have enough to spend cin19 a b } Memory January 30, 2013 8:07:03 PM Your old RAM is 1600MHz, so you are better to get other 1600MHz or two new 1333MHz. you don't have to buy the same brand, get like Kingston, or G.Skill. In the link you will see the performance between 1333 and 1600 is very similar. http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/memory/2011/01/11/the-... cin19 a b } Memory January 30, 2013 8:21:05 PM The 2nd one shows Technical Details 240PIN DDR3 1333 MHz Unbuffered DIMM 8GB (512Mx8/CL9) Limited Lifetime Warranty 100% Tested So I don't know which speed it is. Also the old one has the CL11. If the picture (new one) is correct, then is OK.

If it is the 1600MHz Cl11, then it is fine.

ConnorBazinga January 31, 2013 2:45:50 PM is the corsair worth the extra £7? cin19 a b } Memory January 31, 2013 4:15:43 PM Sorry, I just check the model # for the kingston KVR16R11D4/8I that is the ECC RAM, and you can't use on the PC.
