Default Re: RAM Upgrade

Memory (RAM) works best when installed in pairs. Installing one module produces less-than-desirable performance, so if you want to install 4GB total on your machine, definitely install two 2GB modules rather than one 4GB module. I guarantee you will be pleased with the performance.

unless it is a triple or quad channel motherboard.

but yes, odds are it is a dual channel motherboard and a pair of ram sticks will be optimal.
