Windows 7 professional 64 bit
Gigabyte GA EX58-UD5
i7CPU 920@2.67Ghz 2.66 Ghz
Gskill Ripjaw f3-8500CL7S-4gbrl DDR3-1066 PC-8500 4gbx1 spd cl7-7-7-1 8 1.5v
24 gig ram 6x4
Nvidia Quadro FX4800

I would like to add more ram to this system.  I'm a novice but I think I remember I had to arrange them in a sequence before. These are 4 Gig. I like the rip jaws. What if I wanted to raise it to double the ram? I'll try to add a picture.

Thank you

Using your browser go to www.kingston.com or www.crucial.com and use the tools you find there to see if you can add more and what modules are available for you to use.

If I understand you correctly you already have 24GB of RAM and would like to add more.  According to your motherboard specs it will only support 24GB of RAM. Gigabyte GA EX58-UD5 Specs

What is the reason to need more than 24 GB RAM for a desktop?  I have 16 and never fill it.

It still runs very well now.  Just looking to the future. Adobe Premiere/After Effects (video Editing HD Film) can be demanding running at the same time.

No I can not tell if that is the exact motherboard.  To the right of the (blue) PCI-E 16x slot you should see the FCC logo and the word Gigabyte, that's where you'll find the motherboard model number.

I ran premiere and after effects on 4 gigs no problem, you shouldn't have any foreseen problem
