Suggestion for upgrading memory


Broken In
Hi All,

I own gigabyte ga-ma785gmt-ud2h mobo / AMD Athlon II X4 620 processor 2.60 GHz with Transcend 2GB DDR3 1333 DIMM CL9 memory stick.

Now i would like to upgrade it to 10GB to run vmware images.

I am planning to purchase it from Flipkart. Please suggest what are the key things i need to consider while upgrading.

should i go for corsair or transcend ?
should i buy 1*8GB or go for pairs 2*4GB ? (4 slots available)
will my existing single 2GB effective after upgrade when it goes to 10GB ?
If i go for corsair with my existing Transcend, will it create issue ?

shall i consider the below models :

Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB:
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC DRAM (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9) - Corsair :

Transcend DDR3-1333 DDR3 4 GB:
Transcend DDR3-1333 DDR3 4 GB PC DRAM (JM1333KLN-4G) - Transcend :

Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB:
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) PC DRAM (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10) - Corsair :

Transcend JetRam DDR3 8 GB:
Transcend JetRam DDR3 8 GB PC DRAM (JM1333KLH-8G) - Transcend :

Please suggest.

Pick 1 more 2GB from transcend and add 2x4GB from Transcend so that there's no incompatibility and you get dual channel.. Can you post the timings of your current RAM stick so that we know there wouldn't be compatibility issues?

Thanks 2kool2btrue

My budget is Rs.4000 only. Hence i can purchase only 2X4 GB right now. Do i really need to get another 2GB or still manage with 1X2GB and 2X4Gb ? Please confirm to make decision.

BTW how to get the timings of current RAM stick?
