    Hi Guys,
    I am looking at upgrading my ram. I am looking at a total of 4 gb and either 1333, 1600, 1800 or 2000mhz. Here is my current Pc specs...

    Antec 900 case
    Gigabyte s775 GA-EP45T-UD3LR core 2 motherboard
    Intel s775 core 2 Quad core Q9400
    Kingston 2gb ddr3 1333 1 stick
    Antec 1000watt Psu
    Geforce 8800 Video Card
    Win xp Pro
    2x sata hd

    I can add another stick 2gb of 1333 ram for $29, but can I go faster? Would it be worth the extra cash for some more speed? Will I cause any bottle necks with faster Ram for my system?

    Also the Kingston and Corsair Ram from the Pc Net store where I get my parts from has different model numbers from the Official list that Gigabyte has for my motherboard...is that a problem?

    Also I'm guessing my motherboard only supports dual channel and not tripple channel memory?
