I'm upgrading my RAM in my Ubuntu box and I have a few questions.
I have 4 slots available with max of 16 GB total. My memory type is DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 (ECC)
4 GB maximum per slot.
I have 4GB Memory (2x2GB), 1333MHz, Dual Ranked UDIMM already installed. So two sticks of 2 GB with two empty slots. I want to add 8 GB more with two 4 GB sticks. My questions are;
1. If I get a 4GBx2 can i still run my 2x2GB with it? The slots are available.
2. (see attached first) Is the recommended upgrade the best possible situation? Speed matters more to me than money.
3. How do I know if the memory in the attached pic or any memory for that matter is dual ranked? I think the dual is better because I paid more when I bought it.
4. If that memory stick in the picture isn't dual, can you run dual and single on one machine simultaneously?
Sorry for all the questions!
Thanks for the help!
