p6-2427c

Just purchased a refurbed HP p6-2427C that came with 8gigs of DDR3 1600 ram.  Trying to figure out best ram to purchase to match the other RAM included.  Would it be best to buy 2 sticks of 4gig ram ( I am assuming that is what is currently in the machine) as it has not yer arrived, but I wanted to go ahead and have the additional RAM ordered and on the way.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Re: p6-2427c

Hi,

 

It's best to wait until the PC arrives to see what dimms are  installed in the  refurbed PC.  It might have two 4GB or four 2GB, one 4GB and two 2GB or according to the specifications just one 8 GB dimm.  You will never know with a refurb.

 

Once the PC arrives then run CPU-Z to determine the exact dimm specifications and that way you will the best chance of matching up correctly with the existing dimms.
