Can I upgrade to 6GB of RAM on my Early 2009 Model White MacBook?
Yes, you can.
What x2 3GB sticks?

I don't think 3Gb sticks exist: 1x2Gb, 1x4Gb.
Oh right haha well thanks for helping me out guys
On the up side if you have 4Gb now you only have to buy 1 4Gb stick rather than 2 3Gb sticks
Did you even look at the screenshots? The OP has 2 GB RAM.
Where could I get a 4GB stick from? I can't find one on crucial.com
4GB sticks from crucial are out there they sell sell 2x4 for their 8GB upgrade kit.
Yeah, but be warned, 4 GB sticks are usually VERY expensive. I'm trying to find one to put in my early 2009 MacBook (currently it has 4 GB of RAM installed.)
While 4GB of 667 may be $50 (twice 1333), I'd hardly call it VERY expensive.
That said, it's no use going to 6GB and taking the performance hit of not running in matched pairs (4GB matched will run better than 6GB mixed).
That Macbook can actually take and use 8Gb of ram. But some sites report that it is slightly unstable when it has that much ram in it.
