    It goes off your motherboard. do you know what model it is?

    if you have windows 10, you can now download up to 16gb of ram.

    true pc expert

    download cpuz software, it tells you what motherboard you've got.
    google the spec of your motherboard, should tell you

    try crucial.com/uk and either use their scanner software or just select manufacturer / model etc.

    Lol!

    Find out what motherboad you have, this is a good guide. howtogeek.com/208…pc/

    good thinking!:D

    My 2p worth, the limits given arent solid, sometimes they just give out what the board has been tested with/ what is available.

    I had a board 8 years ago that said the largest module it could take was 2GB, yet it worked perfectly well with 8GB modules when I tried them, and the makers website has been updated to reflect the fact.

    So take the current limit for the 64bit systems limit as an advisory.
