I currently have this machine:
- GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 (v1) motherboard
- INTEL Core i7-920 2.66Ghz 1366 BOX processor
- GEIL Ultra 6144Mb DDR3 1333Mhz CL6 TRIKIT memory
I run Windows 7 Professional on it.
My work involves running 4-8 virtual machines (in Virtualbox) on this computer and I realized that the 6GB memory I have is simply not enough for all of them. So I want to buy some more memory. I'm not really interested in performance, I don't need fast memory, I just need a lot. :-)
Given that this specific memory kit can't be bought near my location anymore, can I use similar memory sticks (like GEIL Ultra 6144MB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 TRIKIT) together with the existing ones? Or should I buy a 12 GB kit and use it?
Would it be possible to use the 6GB kit and the 12GB kit together? (the motherboard has 6 slots so they can fit) What about two 12GB kits?
