Memory p7-1154. Am I correct?

I want to check I have reading the web page correctly. I have a p7-1154 that is 64-bit systems.  So this means my computer can hold 16 GB memory. Correct?   I have 6 GB now and trying to figure out the correct parts to buy to update my computer.  Any advice?

 

I am referring to web page http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02995511&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=5157024&tmp...

KimberSue,

 

Correct, your system has a Windows 7 64-bit operating system and can support up to 16GB of RAM as follows;

 

Dual channel memory architecture
Four 240-pin DDR3 DIMM sockets
Supports DDR3 DIMMs
PC3 10600 (1333 MHz)
PC3 12800 (1600 MHz)
PC3 14400 (1866 MHz)
Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
Supports 1 GB, 2 GB or 4 GB DIMMs
Supports up to 4 GB on 32-bit* systems
Supports up to 16 GB on 64-bit systems

 

To install all 16GB will require the replacement of the current memory. It is highly recommended that you install 4 identical DIMMs in the slots for the best configuration with the least amount of issues. Please see Crucial.com for "guaranteed compatible upgrades" for your computer or you can purchase memory components from the likes of Newegg.com, BestBuy, Fry's, or many other local retailers. Please note that it will take two 8GB upgrade kits to get your computer to 16GB.

Re: Memory p7-1154. Am I correct?

I am a bit lost here.  You said:

 

"It is highly recommended that you install 4 identical DIMMs in the slots for the best configuration with the least amount of issues. "

 

and

 

"Please note that it will take two 8GB upgrade kits to get your computer to 16GB."

 

In one part you said intall four x 4gb but the other you said two 8gb.  I looked at the link and that looks like it is 2 x 8 gb. I assume that would just be removing the two in the computer now and replacing them with 2 x 8's.  Correct?

 

I don't understand the difference in getting 4 x 4 gb with 2 x 8gb.

 

Thank you for your time
