Upgrade your PC Memory with PNY. Experience improved performance.
Today’s software applications make greater demands on your system’s memory. Take full advantage of your software’s productivity enhancements by upgrading your memory and optimizing the efficiency of your desktop PC, with a PNY memory upgrade. Let’s take a look at why you may need a memory upgrade, and how you can maximize your PC.
Potential Reasons for Needing More Memory
You Just Upgraded Your Operating System: One common reason for requiring additional computer RAM memory is operating system upgrades. For example, if you just upgraded your operating system you will find that Windows 8th or 7th requires more RAM than previous models. As operating systems become more sophisticated they need more memory to do their job. This will take away from the amount of computer RAM memory that is available to your other computer applications. Whenever you upgrade your operating system, it’s a good time to assess your computer’s RAM memory needs.
You’re Getting Your Game On: From the casual gamer needing a simple upgrade or storage solution, to the advanced gamer desiring all the dynamic visual effects of the latest DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 games. With today’s advanced visualizations on many popular PC games you may need to increase the RAM memory on your PC in order to maximize your gaming experience. As the gaming world evolves the more advanced games will put an increased memory demand on your system.
You Upgraded Your Business Software: Upgrades of common business software are another factor that can create a need for more RAM memory. Just as with operating systems, business software gets more complex with each new version/update, and invariably it seems like the computer RAM memory needs an increase. If you’re installing new software on your PC, closely look at its memory requirements, and see if you need to upgrade.
You’re Adding a New Graphics Card: If you are installing a new graphics card in your computer system, you may also need to add additional RAM to your computer. Graphics cards depend heavily on your computer’s main RAM, and if there’s not sufficient memory available the video card is going to have poor performance. To play it safe, your best bet is to reference the manufacturer’s specifications on your new graphics card, and see if you ultimately do need to purchase additional memory.
General Use Upgrade: If you realize that things are just taking too long to complete, or you can actually hear your computer “churning” while it is working on large tasks, this is a sign that it could benefit from more computer memory, and you should upgrade it as soon as possible to improve your computer’s general performance.

Both sticks went in easily and were recognized immediately. I did, however, get a warning message after I installed it that said "your RAM would perform better if both sticks were equal amounts" before Windows booted up. Odd, since both sticks WERE equal amounts, and were installed in slots directly beside each other as recommended.
A bit of research revealed that the problem is with 32bit Windows XP and its inability to read more than 3.23gb of RAM. I am not sure if this means the RAM's dual channels are still taking effect (to make use of the dual channel, you have to install the sticks beside each other in matched pairs). Just thought I'd mention that. It is not a problem with the RAM, but rather a result of a limitation within Windows. If you have 64bit Windows, this might not be an issue.
All in all, a nice, inexpensive kit. There are a lot of people here complaining that their RAM was either partially or totally dead, and I believe them. However, I'd like to point out that before buying this, I did some research into the quality and lifespans of other brands to try to get the best deal, and found the same complaint across the board with pretty much all of the brands I considered before settling on this one. I believe it's a problem of cheap RAM in general. For the price, you're probably going to have the same amount of luck with other brands.
I'll be putting an update here if anything goes wrong with this product in the mean time.
And finally, a word to the wise: your motherboard can only support certain amounts of mhz even if the RAM is the same type your board uses. Some types of RAM run at higher mhz than others and you need to make sure your board supports it before you buy. For the record, the packaging of this kit states that it can be used with 667mhz, 533mhz and 400mhz boards.
With the price of this kit below $40 on Warehouse Deals, I figured I'd give it a shot. Machine BIOS recognized all the memory, unfortunately, the Windows XP only recognized 3GB (known fact that XP will only recognize 3 or 3.5GB maximum physical memory). Not a big deal - 3GB is still more than the 2GB it had been running with previously.
