hi ! i got a asus p5k with 4 gb DDR2 ram, id like to know if it is possible to upgrade to 8gb? the manual says that it does, but the person who sold me the computer told me that althought the manual says yes , the motherboard does not support more than 1dimm or 2 of ram from some brands. how can i know if there is anyway to increase my ram to 8gb then?

i got all 4 banks filled with 1gb ddr2 right now.

thanks in advance

Well I'm not a pro but you could try looking at ASUS web site and see if they have your model online with info !?!

or you could do a web search of your Motherboard and see the reviews on it, maybe someome will mention the 4 or 8 Gig question on those sites.

You could even look on Newegg.com and see the reviews for your Mobo model .. and someone might mention the 4/8 limit on there.

As a matter of fact here you go the lnk with all the P5k motherboard from ASUS .. now take your time and research the reviews and product info :

the manual should tell you what ram works for 8gb if not the manual then the site. usually you just take a speed hit ie like running the ram at 533 instead of 667. if the motherboard couldnt be used for 8gb asus wouldnt be able to say it.

edit: heres the qualified venders list for your mobo. all these vendors are tested to work on your motherboard by asus and they basically guarantee that these will work http://usa.asus.com/100/download/products/1637/1637_10.pdf

hope that helps you out
