You should also have a look at the manufacturer's support page for your particular machine to see what they state is the maximum amount of memory you can have.

 

Another tool that I've found incredibly helpful when deciding on memory upgrades is the Crucial System Scanner.  Whether you're buying Crucial memory or not, I have yet to have this tool fail to tell you exactly what type of memory you need, how much is in your machine, how many slots are in your machine, and what the maximum amount of memory (total, and per slot) your system can handle.

You can try it and see if it works.  From what you've described thus far it looks like you'll be mixing memory types, too.  Some machines tolerate this quite well while others object.  The only way you'll know for certain is to buy the additional memory and install it to see if the machine will accept the mix.  If it doesn't, then you'll probably want to dump the original 2GB and possibly purchase another 4GB that matches the stuff you're already buying.

Not shore if you can, might bug the dual channel mode setup and refuse to boot, don't know if you can disable that topic in the bios and 2gigs ddr3 isn't worth much, your best bet would be to get 2x4gig 1600mgz matched pair or 2x8gig matched pair. or if you want to go cheap just get one more 2gig stick that's as close to the memory you have now though that would only give you 4gigs total.

 

If were talking vista or newer the sweet spot is like 8 gigs ram though many go up to 16gigs and some even 32gigs

Your motherboard is capable of running in dual channel.  Dual channel increases the throughput speed of the RAM to almost twice its single channel speed.  For this reason it is well worth matching the RAM module you have installed.  Unfortunately you didn't follow the instructions to provide the hyper link for the Speccy Snapshot.  If this had been provided I would be able to see the make and model of your RAM and provide you with a link to a location where you could purchase a module that would be an exact match to the one already installed.  This is needed in order to have dual channel run properly.

 

Please use the instructions below to produce the Speccy link.

 

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download.

The one piece of information the Speccy will not provide is the make and model of your PSU.  If you know what it is please post this along with the Speccy link which will be generated.

When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

speccy...1png_zpsr3irze6o.png
 
Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.
 
speccy...2_zpsia3rp09d.png
 
The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.

In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Dual channel increases the throughput speed of the RAM to almost twice its single channel speed.

 

Pointed this out in the past DC3 and i don't know why it didn't sink in, its more like 20% and in some cases single channel is faster then dual depending on the benchmark or what your trying to do.
