hey all,

my system is as in my signature.
wanted to consult on whether i should upgrade my RAM with another identical kit (g.skill 2X16 4000 cl17) for a new total of 64gb.
my use cases are video games (cyberpunk, dragon age 3, witcher etc.) and 2d graphics and creativity (Photoshop, corel suite etc.).

thanks!

Stock advice: if you want 64gb of ram, buy a set of 64gb
It is possible it would work fine with 2 sets in an Intel system as they have more chance of working with 2 sets.
sticks in sets only tested to work with other sticks in that set. Might get errors you don't have now adding another.
even if its the exact same ram sticks. It only works out if you buy same ram sticks on same day from same store... then they might be the same enough.

So its your choice, buy 1 set of 64 or take your chances that you won't get errors combining 2 sets.

the ram might be useful to you. It seems 64bit is the next step and yet a lot of people don't even use/need 32gb yet.
