My Mobo can only handle 8gb and there is only 2 ram slots. Im asking if I could just put one 8gb ram stick in there and call it good?

I'm currently using:
Dell optiplex 390 Mobo
Intel core i3 3220
800gb Seagate hdd
Ddr 3 ram
Emachines computer case.

I just built this PC so I don't really have an os yet.

might want to check this forum out.. people say that the 390 can in fact accept 2x8GB but according to Dell it is only 2x4GB so id think if that be true each DIMM could only handle 4GB , so no you couldn't use a single 8GB... however if what other users claim is true. you should be able to . Dell 390 memory

For the 8GB sticks to work it would probably have to be low density memory. If you can find some from the Dell forum you better grab it because it is not made anymore.
