Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

          I have wanted to upgrade the memory for a while but was not sure what to buy and how to install. With Crucial, recommended by my internet providers customer service, everything was easy. You told me what memory to buy, to buy in pairs for better performance, and how to install it. It was fast and easy with your help.
