I just bought this laptop- K55N-RHA8N29, Its as ASUS with an A8-4500m, 6gb RAM.
I dont plan on doing much multi tasking, i never have. All i want it for is watching some movies and playing WoW here and there.
I already have a beast desktop, just wanted a decent laptop to play around on.
Question: With 6gb RAM, i would only be using 2gb DUAL and 2 single, right? Would it be a SUBSTANTIAL upgrade to buy a set of 8gb(4gbx2) RAM set? I used Newegg compatability... said these CORSAIRs were a good fit, who knows how good that site is though. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Do they have to be a certain timing, or can i just buy any set of sticks i want? Obviously i wouldnt buy unmatching ones.
^^ Agreed, upgrading your ram will only further your multitasking abilities. If you don't plan or running a bunch or programs at the same time then there is no need to upgrade. If you still feel inclined to upgrade then the RAM you selected will work just fine.
I agree with other two posts here. I have same laptop as yours, but the difference is that I upgraded mine to 8gb. I only upgraded it because of my greediness of having max RAM; however, I didn't find any significant improvement. You will be just fine with 6gb RAM perhaps more than enough.
