Default New RAM Arrives today

I already have 1 stick of PATRIOT 2GB, it was originally supposed to be 4GB, but the other stick was faulty, and I never had the time to send it back.

I ordered new ram... - G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Which will arrive today.

Should I keep my old 2GB in? Or remove it for better performance in dual channel?

If you are running a 32 Bit OS it doesnt matter. It wont recognize anything over 4GB anyways.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

If your Patriot stick runs at the same speed then it wouldn't hurt. If it's slower then take it out as it will only slow your computer down.
