Memory question

Hi all,
The pieces for new build are taking shape, all ready to receive my 64bit version of W7 in October (well it's all stacking up in the spare room), but stuck on the memory to go for.

It's an i7 chip on this motherboard:

GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-EX58-UD5 (rev. 1.0)

Wanted to go for G-skill trident 6gb kit (DDR3 - 2000), but not on the compatibility list for the board, so was after comparable alternatives between 100- 120 pounds??

Cheers,

Saw them earlier.
Had my heart set on the G-skill or equivalent though.

The GSkill will work fine with your board. Not all of the usable memory types are on those lists.

Question regarding Dual Channel Memory- Mix or Match Memory
I have a computer I built and used since 2010 running well. It has two matched 4GB sticks of DDR3 for a total of 8GB. I have two remaining slots (empty) for ram on the motherboard to add more ram. Do I need to find the exact same memory as the ram I am currently using or does it matter?

Question on Memory
I just got me a hot deal on a new laptop. It is a Core i5 that comes with 6 GB of RAM. It has a 4 and a 2 stick. The fact that the channels are uneven, does that do anything to hinder the performance of the laptop? Thanks,

So i have 32x Win7 I also have 8GB of memory. My question is how much memory can this architecture actually see? its 32bit, so shouldn't it only see a max of 4? in the my computer properties, it tells me i have 8, but a bunch of programs tell me i have the 3.25. Do i need to move to 64x?...
