Hi there,

I've got an Asus P5W. It's got 2 1GB sticks of RAM in it. I've had this PC for about 3 years now. It's performing pretty well.

I'm going to install Windows 7 soon and also use a SSD drive. Whilst I'm at it, I thought I'd upgrade the RAM or perhaps even the RAM, Motherboard and CPU.

Anyway, would either of these do the trick for upgrading the RAM?

IIRC correctly, I've got three RAM slots (but one is blocked by the ridiculous heat sink on the CPU, which I'm too scared to move now). 2GB was amazing 3 years ago. Is 4GB worth the upgrade or should I consider replacing the whole lot?

Cheers in advance!
