You have to get the same brand RAM and specifications as you have.

4-slot configurations are usually divided into 2 channels and most desktop CPUs are dual channel memory controllers.

It's important that the memory modules on each channel are identical.


Better safe than sorry!

I now noted that @eben83's comp is running a 32-bit Win 7.

A 8GB module isn't possible in this case as the maximum capacity of addressable memory is 4GB or less for 32-bit Windows OS due to the memory address limitation.

So the only choice of the ones listed here is SKU 9658379

Depends on what the OP needs. Is it to expand his current memory or a fresh MB. For 4Gb a single stick would suffice or 2 X 2GB for dual channel.

4GB is not much nowadays, so I would guess looking for an upgrade.

As a hobby PC builder and moderate overclocker, would never take the cheap route with RAM or PSU's

Only, there are no 2GB DDR3 modules listed here.
