I currently have 4 GB total RAM and I would like to get some more, to bring it to a total of 8 GB. Is it possible to simply buy another 4 GB and bring it to 8? If so, what kind should I be buying? There is a lot of different possibilities, DDR3, DDR2, clock speed, etc. I am kind of lost among all this.
My current setup goes like this:
- ACER EG43M mainboard
- Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz
- 4 total RAM slots, 2 occupied by 2 GB sticks
- According to CPU-Z, my memory type is DDR3 (not sure how reliable that is)
- Full CPU-Z dump
- Windows 7 64-bit
So basically, I want to know whether it's possible to extend my current RAM to get 8 GB total by buying another 4, and if so, what kind of RAM do I need?
Note that I am not looking for shopping recommendations. I'm worried about the hardware compatibility.
