Well, in one case you would have 6 GB and in the other case you would have 8 GB.

I'd probably go for 8 and replace both sticks with a pair of 4s. You may not notice any difference between 6 and 8, but RAM is at an all-time low price, so you would save very little if you wanted to stay with only 6.

Talk to Acer again or look at their web site and try to find a list of approved RAM. Make sure you get the right stuff. Don't worry about the speed rating so much, but make sure you get the right type, right voltage, and a decent brand.
