    Hello. Is it good/ok to remove one ram stick and add a new 8gb ram for total 10gb of ram? Does it works or should i go with 2 x 8 at once?

    It will probably be OK, but matched pairs are better. 2 x4 is cheaper than 1 x 8 at the moment if money is tight, and you might not need any more than that anyway.

    8gb will be fine for me but what is best, 2 x 4gb or one 8gb stick?

    neither use the oem 2gb with an 8gb stick.


    if you force me to pick 2x 4gb or 1x 0gb and 1x 8gb.

    I would get 2x 4gb

    Please explain - owc sells a 4+8 option - how would a 2+8 option be any different? Honestly I am curious - not trying to be difficult! :)

    So no issues at all? Does it run quickly?
