Question Memory Upgrade HELP!!!


I have an asus p5n32 sli se deluxe. There are 4 slots DIMM_A1 and DIMM_A2, and DIMM_B1 and DIMM_B2.

I currently have 1gb of ram in DIMM_A2:

1GB, Ballistix 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 upgrades for ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe Motherboard, CT610014 from

I would like to upgrade to 4gb so here's my question:

If I buy the above again, which slot would I put it in?

That gets me 2gbs of ram, so would I be able to buy this 2x1GB set ( 2GB kit (1GBx2), Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMM (with LEDs), DDR2 PC2-5300 upgrades for ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe Motherboard, CT612528 from ) , and if so which slots would I putt these into?

If you buy 4 1gig sticks just put a stick in each slot. Just be careful as to what OS your using. Windows XP dosent use anymore than 3gig of RAM. Also, make sure they are matched to make it dual channel as well. (Not neccesary though)
