Dear Tech Report Community,
I am considering to purchase extra RAM for my Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3 motherboard.
Currently I have two 1024 MB PC2-6400 DDR2-SDRAM Muskin 991533 (996533) already installed. One is in slot 0 and the other is in slot 2. I am pretty sure it's dual-channel.
I hope to purchase more RAM at a price that is hopefully less than $100. I would like to have extra 4GB of RAM (or more if it's not too pricy) but I don't know how RAM compatibility works very well.
I heard it's best to get similar type of RAM but then I will only have 4GB of RAM rather than 6GB (also I am not sure I can find any more of these RAM modules).
So for example, would Crucial Ballistix BLS2G2D80EBS1S00 work well with my system? Are there better options out there? Can I get something that's greater than PC2-6400? If at all possible I would like to keep using my Muskin.
Any help is much appreciated,
