    Hey, I have

    TWO - 1gb sticks
    and
    TWO - 2gb sticks
    equaling 6gb

    Can i install 6gb? Whats the best configuration on the board? Would you just recommend getting 8 total?

    Thanks.

    It's simple really.

    2 X 2GB in the top riser, slots A and B
    2 X 1GB go in bottom riser, slots A and B

    Of course, if you can afford it, 8GB is better than 6GB.
    8GB will fill in a couple more slots which will make your processors more efficient but probably not enough that you will see a difference.
