Just have a quick question. I'm planning to upgrade to Vista Ultimate 64Bit from Vista Home Premium 32Bit. I currently have 2GB of memory, and was planning on picking up 4GB more. My question is whether or not they will be compatible together.

Current RAM:

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145034

RAM I want to add:

CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145184

My Motherboard:
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L-S3L


Thanks for reading.

32-bit Windows only sees up to 4Gb of memory. Therefore even if you add another 2Gb you'll only see 3.2Gb of it all anyway.
If you want the full 6Gb of memory (if you were to add the extra) you'd need a 64-bit version of Windows.

Your best bet is really to contact Corsair directly. They'll be able to tell you for sure.
