asked on

memory what are my options

Hi guys,
I am a dev and have no idea about hardware.  My desktop has 8 GB memory (4*2GB).  I want to increase it, but I don't have any more slots.  I currently have this memory

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231166

I am not sure what my options are.  When looking at memory, which numbers are important?  How can I tell what my computer takes from the memory above?  (240 pin DDR2?  Is this my only option)

You can't go any higher than the 8GB you already have on that board. DDR2 is limited at 4GB per module.
