Hello - sorry to post a somewhat noobish question... I used to know RAM and builds and parts very well in the early 2000s, and then i got lazy and had a rig custom built for me 5 years ago for gaming and what not. I dont game much at all anymore... Want to upgrade the system, which runs flawlessly, now that I have Win 7, to have more RAM and be a little quicker all around.

Specs:



I have NO idea what RAM to get to get me up to 8GB. Gigabyte site says up to DDR3 2200. I cant find 1.9V RAM on newegg. I cant fin this exact PN for sale anywhere anymore (except used). Also cant seem to find 1.9V RAM either. Can someone reco a good, solid, not too expensive (around $80-100) 8GB setup for me to replace the existing OCZ RAM?

Thanks!

Is your CPU at stock - to run the sticks will need to raise the FSB to 1600, which will OC the CPU also...

Should, P45 chipset supports 4GB sticks

cpu-z tells me 333Mhz FSB. I tried to change it with the old mem still installed and it wont go to FSB 400MHz, even though I THINK I set it that way in the BIOS . I would love some help (i am an old noob...this stuff used to make sense, and then i stopped tinkering, and you know how that goes...)

Thanks for help...

Taking the FSB to 400 will prob need additional CPU and NB voltage

Sounds like you found the FSB, so next would be the NB voltage (might try taking it up + 0.07 from current value) and the CPU voltage, often called the vCore voltage try it up about + 0.06 to start
