Memory upgrade for games machine

  Jaded1 14:08 11 Jan 2015

Hi. I'm thinking around upgrading a donated m/b (GA-P41T-D3P). It's going to a 15 year old, so likely to be a games machine. The max RAM is 4 Gb. There seems to be a choice of either 2 x 2 Gb, cheaper: or 1 x 4 Gb, dearer. Is there any advantage (speed?) to the single module. Thanks. J

This is something of an informed guess, but a) if your mobo is specified to support up to 4GB and has two slots, I'd suggest that it's designed to take 2 x 2GB sticks, and b) I don't believe you'd see any performance difference at all between configuring 2 x 2GB and 1 x 4GB. Why don't you try the Crucial scanner here.

If your OS is 64-bit then it will support 8GB of ram, specifications , otherwise , with a 32-bit OS just 4 Gig.
