Additional Comments: Just wanting to know if these parts are compatible with each other. I've done as much research as I can to find out if they are and I just want a bit of reassurance about my choices.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I'm rebuilding because my old computer is getting real old (6 or more year I think) and over the last few years I've had to change a lot of parts with replacements.
Now I can't seem to play most games because it will freeze and require a computer reset or it will crash to blue screen.
I have been trying to figure out why this is for awhile with little or no success.
so I figured time to get a new pc and I will miss the old girl so much, she had been so reliable and good to me for so long but alas all good things must come to an end. :(

Hi. Yes those parts are compatible and I'm sure you're aware of the fact that the motherboard has only 2 memory slots.

There's nothing wrong with 4GB. I was just making sure of your choice to go with 4GB instead of 8GB.
January 10, 2013 1:46:21 AM

Ah I see but I think I will be fine with just the 2.
Thank you for your help.
