  • Advice needed if possible

    I have been looking into adding another 8 GB of ram. I have x4 4GB Mushkin Enhanced silverline ram but when I've come to fit it I only have a 2 slots for ram. So is it worth getting rid of the ram I've got and get x2 8 GB or is it worth me upgrading the motherboard instead. Any help would be great thanks.

    Buy and fit the Ram first if it is the same that a new MOBO will take. Then you will not need the new extra cost OR the re-install of the OS .

    YYou can still selll your old RAM - not that it will fetch mutch.
    I've not failed. I've just found 10.000 ways that don't work!

      Flogging the RAM for 2x 8GB sticks will be far more cost effective, but the question is: are you in need of 16GB of RAM?
