Without knowing what system you have & what RAM is already fitted it is impossible to help you.

 Based on the (lack of) information you've supplied, all that can be said is you plug it in.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Installing ram is dead simple, just pop the ram into the slots and call it a day.

The only complication I see is if you dual channel, meaning you put your ram into slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4.

Most motherboards have at least four RAM slots, some have more some have less but in a standard motherboard four is most common.

Dual channel means you divide the load into separate slots, this is why if you have four slots you put one RAM unit into a slot, leave the next slot empty and then pop the ram into the following slot, this is why the slots are different colors to tell you what ones are set for that dual channel.

You know you want me baby!
