Need some RAM advice
Recently my processor has been going up in usage lately from just about anything even in idle, my antivirus is telling me half my RAM burned out and I am running on 2 gigs but I am not sure if that is true. I'm looking to upgrade to 8 gigs from the initial 4 gigs of RAM when i first got my computer like 3 years ago. I'm not sure if my computer is limited strictly to a 4 or 8 gig maximum, but I am also looking into putting in dual channel RAM because I am a gamer.
[h=1]PNY XLR8 Dual Channel 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory - 2x2048MB[/h]This is what I am looking at and I have 4 RAM slots on the motherboard, any feedback would be grand.
Below is my system info from the msconfig, If you need more info ill be glad to go into the BIOS settings to get it.
