I am purchasing a new PC very soon.
It will most likely be the HP Touchsmart 600 series. The question I have about memory is that I have been told by the BestBuy geek that DDR3 memory needs to be installed in a set of "3". Like 3, 6, 9 gigs. Otherwise you are not getting anything but DDR2 performance.
He said that a system advertising DDR3 at 4 gigs is basically operating at DDR2 levels.
Is this true?
I like the Touchsmart series as it is an All-In-One machine for me and no clutter (cables, etc..) around. However, it costs $200 to go from 4 gigs DDR3 to 6 gigs DDR3 when configuring it on the HP website. I would have to have it added then as the All-In-One is probably too complex for me to purchase 2 gigs of DDR3 on down the road and add it myself. (I am a klutz.)
Many thanks in advance for your replies.
