So my computer is largely "stock" with an "aftermarket" graphics card and power supply, and the RAM is also, of course, stock. To go into more detail it seems to be "dual slot" banks with 2 banks total. This computer ran completely hassle-free before hand, except for slowness with certain applications, so I purchased two new sticks of ram.

NEW RAM(2): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820178332
(4096MB ---> 8192MB)
If I could keep all four of them in there, that would be a beautiful thing, but right now I'd be content if I could just get the two new sticks in and working. Upon initial installing, both of them did work, for about 10 minutes after logging in before freezing. Which was then followed by consistent freezing before even signing in. I'm sure this has something to do with frequencies and timing, but my knowledge on those concepts are...largely non-existent. I would really appreciate someone who knows a bit more than me shedding some light on this, thanks!
