MB: gigabyte z78x-ud3h

I5-4670 3.40ghz

ram is 2x - 4mb = 8mb

 

I know my MD is DDR3 i think and i have 2 empty mem slots, what i want is to add 2 x 8mb ram

 

I am a bit of a novice  on this i know how to install just plugging it into the mb.

 

not sure what the speed of the ram i have is the MHz or what ever that is

 

I know the DDR3 is the slot and i need to match that and i was planning to buy a 2 pack so that the new ram would

computer is about 3 or 4 years old

the i5- 4670 was the latest generation of I5 processor when it was built.

 

I don't want to replace what i already have  since it works great

 

can i just go and buy any 2-pack 8mb ram (16 total bring my system up to 24mb) of any ddr3?

You can get 2x8, but they must be DDR3 1600mhz because your I5 cpu is limited to that speed.
