2 4gb Ram Vs 1 8gb

EDIT:::: a moot point. yous have two slots, and max ram is viii gigs.

You need to be extremely conscientious with mixed ram.  Not only practise they have to match exactly merely even and then there are oftentimes problems with stability.

I doubt yous are using all your 8 gigs now and a improve bet might exist to sell the backlog on a site similar ebay.

BTW I have the aforementioned HP

I’ll only go with the two x 4 GB. I’d rather be safe than sorry.

The reason I want to upgrade my RAM is for gaming. We’ll see how the new GPU affects things. Then maybe I’ll reconsider.

Cheers for your assist. I really like this figurer–it’southward very small, fashionable, and I got it really inexpensive. The just problem is that the onboard graphics are simply deplorable. The WEI for the RAM, HDD, and CPU are expert, simply the graphics ratings are really low (3.2 and three.four).

Your not going to improve whatever graphics score by calculation more than memory.

If its a desktop PC, buy a suitable graphics card, if its a notebook you are stuck with what yous accept.

Some times with older MB’s (Motherboard’south) the maximum corporeality of RAM you can take in 1 bill of fare is 2GB, and I’k guessing that your MB with only ii ram card slots is in that boat. Some newer MB’s do only take two slots for RAM cards but giving more info. about yr arrangement will help me answer this question.
