CSRACK RAM upgrade


I have a CSRACK (core2 quad) that I purchased in 2009. I have 4GB currently. I would like add at least another 4GB of RAM. Can anyone tell me what type of RAM I should use?

You should have 4 RAM slots and they'll each have a 1GB DIMM installed.
That model (P43 chipset motherboard w/ Quad Core) should take DDR2/800. You can physically install up to 16GB on that motherboard.
Unless you special ordered a Creation Station with a 64-bit OS, the system is maxed out at 4GB. It's a limitation of how 32-bit systems handle memory addresses.
You would have to have a 64-bit OS installed to get more than 4GB available.
If you want to move the system to Window 7 64-bit, you can call our service department for a quote.
