Hello everyone,

 

Looking for help regarding upgrading RAM in my Gateway FX6000. I have PCI slots, I believe, to upgrade, currently holding 6 DDR3 1GB cards. I want to upgrade to 16GB. Is this possible? I can buy two 4GB RAM cards from Ebay rather cheap, but I don't know if the motherboard can handle this upgrade.

 

Currently I have 3 older looking RAM and three PC3 10666 Platinum Series 1 GB cards. Also, there are 3 white PCI slots with the older RAM and three blue with the newer lokking PC3 10666 RAM.

 

If anyone can help me out this would be great.

 

I am going to upgrade my graphics card as well.

You can use the system scanner to confirm RAM, > https://www.crucial.com/

 

for best performance your RAM needs to be in sets of 3, triple channel mode, 6 x 2GB sticks = 12GB max supported on the MB.

We also need the make and model of your PSU to determine what class of GPU you could use.
