Windows 7: Adding RAM Compatible With My Biostar Motherboard

Adding RAM Compatible With My Biostar Motherboard

Hey guys!

I am getting very frequent warnings from Windows telling me that I am short on memory and need to close programs in order to free up RAM. Firefox is crashing constantly and my screen even goes black and doesn't go back to the desktop.

So I am looking at upgrading from 3GB to 7GB by adding a 4GB stick. This is my motherboard (BIOSTAR A770E3 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD) and I am wondering if this RAM (Crucial 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CT51264BA1339) is compatible with it.

Try to get it up to 8 gigs if you can, ( if the motherboard will accept 8 gigs ) and make sure all the speeds are the same, and keep the sizes the same in each colored slot, if you have different colored slots.

Hope that makes sense to you.

The Crucial listing shows an 8GB kit for that motherboard.

Much appreciated.

Another question: I found this on Newegg and it's cheaper (and I can only get 4GB at the moment). But is SDRAM compatible with my motherboard? I'm trying to find out if all DDR3 is SDRAM and the Crucial site is just not spelling it out.

I have that information, but I just want to know if there's a difference between SDRAM and DDR3? Is all DDR3 RAM SDRAM?

I appreciate any help.

Thanks all. I ordered what I could, but I won't be able to get the rest for two more weeks.
