ps: the kingston is from one of my friends he wants to sell it to me cheap.. :)

pps: in cpu-z my memory slot it writes maz bandwith pc2 6400 (400 mhz) :| what i bought was 800 mhz... i dont get it...

Not too recommended, although it may work well straight away. It may need only a little bios settings tweak or another possibility is that it will be difficult.

If you are seeking answer for this part:

DDR -> Double Data Rate -> 400 Mhz x 2 -> 800 Mhz effective.


VERY IMPORTANT to install matching sticks (same brand) to avoid problems.
