Hi


My Motherboard supports 8 GB of Ram and a Maximum of 2 GB in one Slot..

I currently have 2(2x1GB) GB Ram PC2-6400 (800Mhz)



My PSU has a Maximum power output of 300watts.


I wish to increase it to 3 GB


My Question are


Should the Ram be of the same company?( for better performance)

will their be any issue if the CAS Latency Number don`t match or is it fine?





Reason am not upgrading to 4 GB is because I have a 32 Bit O/S and 4 GB ram won`t be utilised anyway..

Yes you should try to get all identical ram. If the CAS latency does not match there shouldn't be problem.

Samsung is a major RAM chip manufacturer - other brands may well use Samsung chips anyway.

It's almost certain that your motherboard runs memory in two channels for higher performance. This generally requires pairs of DIMMS to be fitted, so normally you'd go for 4GB total, as fitting only one more DIMM is likely to cause the motherboard to revert to single channel operation. Even though the full 4GB can't be utilized, often you can get to use more than 3GB, and keeping dual-channel operation will be faster.

Top 5 things that never get done:

Indeed Samsung is a major manufacturer in ram chip. I have never used there one for desktop but i have currently have it in my laptop which is working fine. You would seriously want take advantage of the dual channel speed.
