upgrading ram

hello,
i was just wondering if i could upgrade my ram from 4gb to 8gb on my motherboard??
IT is a Foxxconn GM31 MK-X mobo
which says it can handle 4gb but i have read on various sites in can handle 8gb(2x 4gb)
I am running 64bit with updated bios which allows the full 4gb which i have installed

Oh, and can anyone tell my if my DRAM Frequency is correct??
Thanks

Are you sure you have that motherboard model number exactly right??

A Google search for that model number generates only one hit, and that is for this very thread.

I'd go to Crucial.com and let its configurator "sniff" your machine and see what RAM choices it comes up with. Crucial's stuff is guaranteed to work with your particular PC.

Crucial is always a great resource, and since the OP knew his exact motherboard model....it should be easy to find.

intel G31 chipset memory controller (that is in your MB) officially supports max 4GB of ram.
8GB may work but i would not recommend it.
