memory question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been looking at getting a BIOSTAR A55MH FM1 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard and it is in a bundle kit, it includes 4GB of memory. My question is, is that going to be sufficient with running windows 7 64-bit and using the computer for basics, web, email, word and other documents, and a few programs. No gaming or anything. If that isnt sufficient I found that Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model KVR1333D3N9/4G is on the Memory list for that MB. My question is being that memory is 4GB and i noticed that its only one, are you able to instal two of those to have 8GB total and run them as duel channel even though they are not sold as a pair. Thanks for the input!

MEMORY
Support Dual Channel DDR3 1866/1600/1333/1066/800 MHz
2 x DDR3 DIMM Memory Slot
Max. Supports up to 16GB Memory


While 4gigs will be more than adequate, you could use up to 16gigs.
For the best performance (ie. dual Chanel) both memory sticks should be identical sticks purchased as a matched pair.

Purchasing two stocks separately, even identical part numbers and specs, does not guarantee getting a matched set.

I ran 4gb on 64bit windows until about 2 weeks ago when I upgraded to 8gb. Only times I ran out of ram was BF3 and on my DAW application with some vsti's and synths etc.

With what APU will this be paired with?  1333Mhz is a bottleneck for A6 and A8 APUs with the integrated graphics.
