    Thanks for the fast answer. Now the question.

    Shall I pull out the 2 x 2GB's that are already there and install 4x 4GB's or just add 2x 4GB's extra.

    Will i feel a difference between having 12 or 16 GB's of ram ?

    16 GB is substantially better than 12 GB. Plus then all the RAM will be the same type which is even better.

    16 GB it will be :)

    Thanx again. Now time to spend some money :)

    4x169 = 676 ... Sounds soooo expensive in Danish Crowns :-D .. 120$ That is :)

    Well, in normal use you'd saturate neither 12GB nor 16GB. But selling the 2x2GB doesn't make much sense in that you wouldn't get any substantial money from that if you did.

    EDIT: On the other hand, it doesn't hurt having them lying around knowing that they're not worth much anyway.

    That's very generous of you. :) Seriously though, just giving them is a good idea.
