I just had a quick question regarding RAM. I built my custom gaming PC a few months ago, everything is running perfect. I had some extra cash so I was thinking about adding a little more RAM.
I currently have 4GB CORSAIR DDR2 (Newegg.com - CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
1. Is it ok to have two different types of RAM in? In other words, if I go with another brand and put the new RAM in, will everything still work OK or is it recommended to buy the same RAM I bought in the first place?
2. Do you think it's needed to have 8GB of RAM, or is that way too much. I'm not sure how to tell if I'm pushing 4GB right now, I'm interested to see how much I really need.
If it's OK to use another type of RAM, is there any you would recommend for a great price?
