RAM Upgrade

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello Fellow Overclockers,

I have now enough money to upgrade and I think I should Upgrade my RAM now the thing is My OS is 32-Bit and I am thinking of upgrading to 4-6GB will it be compatible with 1.) My OS and 2.) My Current RAM Kit

Current kit : (2X 1024MB)
If I had 4GB: (4X 1024MB)
If I had 6GB: (2X 1024MB 2X 2048MB)

Thanks
Thebest

ok, first off with the 32 bit your only going to see up to 3.5 with 4 gigs. second, i have read where a 2x2 set will run better than a 4x1 set when it comes to o/c'ing. 4 gigs is all you will absolutely need with a 32 bit o/s, some say that will be overkill. see the set that i have in my sig, they work great, and alot of others like them as well. they were on sale for $99.99, but i believe the sale is over. i have the same board and chip that you do, also running a 32 bit o/s. i would recomend getting the 4 gigs if you want to upgrade(not necessary though), and get the 2x2 set.

He means that a 32 bit OS will recognize 3.5GB out of the 4GB installed.

OK, most guys will say Reaper, or Ballistix, or Kingston. And that's really good stuff. I tried the RAM from eWiz called "Super Talent" and it overclocked VERY well. Plus it's not very expensive. 4 gigs is currently $80.64 + shipping.

I have never purchased in the UK but your pound goes a lot farther than our dollar Can't you order it from eWiz in the USA and pay shipping? Since it's just 2 sticks of ram I doubt it would be too expensive. Honestly. I'm not sure. But I'd see if you can even make an order on eWiz. Good luck
