RAM upgrade Jumble

Recommended Posts

Hello dear all,

 

I am using this Mobo for my primary desktop-

 

MSI k8nGM2 FID

Its paired with an AMD manchester 3800 X2.

Transced DDR 1 RAM 400 Mhz, 128 Bit dual channel.

 

1 TB Quad raid array.... Geforce 9800 GT etc....

 

 

Now the RAM is 1GB.......2 Sticks of 512 MB for Dual channel.

 

Everything is stock and PC working like a champ for these years.

 

 

yeah yea... 1 Gb is very skimpy so i decided to upgrade it....

MOBO has 4 slots, 2 of them filled with 512MB ones...

 

So what are my upgrade options...

 

IF i put 1 GB new sticks in remaining Two slots...

Will RAM become 3GB... and everything like DUAL CHANNEL work properly?

 

Or will I have to buy 4 sticks of 512 anew?

dual channel should still work just make sure you get the same speed and close timings so that you dont loose performance.
