Please do not duplicate your topics as it may lead to you being offered the same guidance at differing times and lead to confusion as to which and who`s guidance you are following.

Please continue at this thread where we will do our best to help you, your duplicate topic will be closed so as to avoid you receiving possible multiple replies, thank you for understanding.

The Ram is the one item that I cannot say is compatible.

For the best and most stable performance you should where possible purchase a CPU and Ram that have been tested and approved by the motherboard manufacturer, this is referred to as the QVL ( qualified vendors list ) understand though that there are too many products released for them all to be tested so other hardware will be compatible but not proven to be.

The MBs QVL http://download.giga...a-78lmt-s2p.pdf
Tested with and approved for your MB http://www.memoryten...PC3-10600E-4GB/

Can I ask whether you are using a 32 or 64-bit operating system.
If using a 64-bit OS you would benefit from having 8GB of Ram and 2 X 4GB sticks would be the least expensive option.

I suggest that you purchase a single 4GB stick of Ram then, not only will it be less expensive than purchasing 2 X 2GB sticks it will also be easier and less expensive again to add a second 4GB stick in the future should you decide to upgrade to a 64-bit OS which you need 8GB of Ram for to get the best performance.

You are welcome BTW :thumbsup:
