The easy way to find out is to go to www.crucial.com - download the scanner and it will tell you exactly how much memory your motherboard will support. it will also tell you how much you have installed and what kind of memory to buy. Otherwise you can go to the Biostar website and look up the specs on your model as well. But Crucial.com is your best bet.- Paul

Thru this crucial scan I found out that the memory can be upgraded to 8GB.

 

Thank you very much for your good advice!

 

Regards fahen.
