    Hiya all,

    Im ok'ish with computers and stuff, but always like to get a range of Opinions, before doing any upgrading or changing to my system.

    Ive got the above All in one, and to be honest has been an excellent all round computer for us. but as all men are alike, I want to give it a little extra oooomph, as Ive had it 5 yrs now.

    The current system as below ( from Belarc ). Obviously 4gb Memory, I want to stick 8gb in and using the Crucial Memory scanner, it is possible ( I know I will have to install Windows 64bit ),

    I was going to stick the following in.

    8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3 PC3-12800 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.35V

    or

    8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3 PC3-14900 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.35V

    What would you experts recommend? before I take the plunge?

    before investing in a 64 bit copy of windows, first check to see if there are 64bit drivers available for your system.
