So I was thinking of upgrading my RAM from 3GB to maybe a good 8GB. I'm pretty sure that would be more than what I need. I play a lot of games and I work on stuff and constantly multi task. Sometimes my machine even lags due to the many windows that I open simultaneously.
Before I decide to buy a good stick of RAM, I'd like to know what I'm looking for exactly. I don't want to just buy two 4gig sticks and plug and play and maybe regret that soon after. I'd like to know what to tell store keepers when I'm in there buying.
I have an EMX-MCP61P-AVL motherboard, Kingston 99U5316-028 .A00LF and Kingston 99U5429-007 .A00LF. Currently it's 3GB total and I have 2 slots on my MOBO. In my understanding, the best upgrade would be 8GB. I don't want to go over since that would be too much RAM and it would be useless.
