I'd double check whether adding an extra 2Gb to your board will knock it out of 'dual channel mode (synchronous)' into 'single channel mode (asynchronous')

If it reverts to single channel, it can theoretically hurt performance.


As for cash - how much do you want to spend and what do you really want to achieve?

You need to look up what kind of ram you have in your computer now. You can do so with a program like Speccy. Once you've downloaded the program run it and take a screenshot (Alt+Printscreen) of the RAM page. The important parts are whether or not you have dual channel, the type (DDR3 for me), the max bandwidth (PC3-8500[533] for me) and the clocks (7-7-7-20 for me).

I.E.

If it's pre-built, then it will be.

And as for fast - the replies take as long as they take. Some of us actually have other things to do you know
