So I have 4 slots, and i want to add at least 2 more gigs of ram.
I dont know anything about ram timing, so I'm left wondering should I just 2 more of the same, which is the newegg link below. Or can i buy 2 chips that are something less expensive without seeing to much of a decrease versus the performance of having 4 of the same....
Basically what would a techie doo in my shoes, thats on a budget. if its best to stay with the gskill then I'll get them.
thanks in advanced for any help. the second link is something cheaper with decent ratings that I was thinking of getting instead...
