Yep

As others have stated, with a max of two DImm slots = 4Gb total.

It will not improve games performance having 8GB.

"Blazing fast" is a relative term.

Some would say an 64x2 6000 @ 3.0 + 9600 is far from blazing.

It all depends on what you want to blaze.

Actually according to the specs, it has 4 DIMM slots...with each one taking a maximum of 2GB.....thus 8GB is possible.

Yeah, some are real elitists when it comes to hardware...but that CPU is getting a bit outdated. It's far from unusable with Windows 7...but compared to the new Core i series CPU's....it simply cannot compete.

8GB really doesn't make much difference over 4 when the OS isn't coded to take advantage of it anyway
