Closed Purchase Motherboard comes w/ free RAM? Tags: Memory RAM Motherboards Intel i5 Last response: February 15, 2013 11:11 PM in Memory Share lentyski February 9, 2013 2:46:04 AM So I am thinking (from a long time ago post haha) of getting this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... For the Intel I5 that I plan on getting...(finally got the cash!) However, I was also wanting to upgrade my RAM...but that motherboard comes with a free 8 GB Stick...but its just one stick...people say I should maybe get a 4X2? (4 GB In each) instead? So I would end up getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If that is the case...or if the 1 stick is enough, could save 50 bucks...but...hmm....opinions, ideas? .
