When buying RAM..do you have to make sure that the speed of the ram you buy absolutely has to match with the ram you might already have?
Thanks for your response
It depends on what speed your motherboard can handle. If you don't know what speed it can handle, getting the same speed as what you currently have is the safest bet. The speed of the RAM module has nothing to do with the GB size.
You could have a 2GB PC3-12800 stick, which is rated at 1600MHz.
You could also have a 4GB PC2-5300 stick rated at only 667MHz.
