Heres my question:
I have been on Newegg.com looking for a ram upgrade. I want the fastest most ram bang for my buck, It seems I can't find the right mem for my mobo. Can someone help this relative noob out? I can't find single channel DDR2 4x2gb sticks. I really wanted to do dual channel 1066mhz 2x2gb sticks before I found out how dumb I was to buy this comp without much research at all.
Oh yeah I'm not a gamer, but I do want to future proof this Windows 7 machine a little and will be buying a 64gb SSD in the near future to boot from.
Thanks for any help you might be able to pass along,
