Hello all, i'm looking to finally upgrade the RAM in my gaming rig which is fairly out of date.
Currently i'm using 2 slots out of the 4 on my motherboard and each have a 1gig stick. Here's my dilemma though.. on newegg the motherboard (link
) claims to hold 8gigs of memory maxed. However when i run sisoft sandra it tells me this:
4gigs? this might be because i'm running windows xp 32bit? when i get this RAM i'm going to upgrade to windows 7 64 bit.
also what i'm just wanting an opinion on, as far as buying this ram goes, is should i go with 2x2g sticks bringing me up to 6 gigs? i've heard that if you use all of your ram slots it can lead to problems..
lotta questions here but i hope this makes sense to somebody!
thanks in advance!
