Hey guys, so lemme just say my 1st build went awesome, thank you all for your help! I am looking into starting a kinda side business to make comps for friends & other people, just to make a quick buck or two.
But I have thought of A few questions..
I've got this motherboard: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128387
It has 4 slots for memory, and the specifications say it is "Dual Channel". I know if you have 2 sticks of memory, you put both in the same color. But what if I want to add more memory? Can I put 2 more sticks into the other 2 remaining spots and I will have even more memory? or will my computer just read 2 of the 4 sticks.

Also, do y'all have like msn or some IM service so if I have more questions I can ask on there? :)

If you fill up all four slots, each "pair" will run in dual channel mode. The computer will be able to see all four sticks.
