Question

Is this RAM compatible with my Motherboard?

Hello, can you help me to figure out if I should buy this memory: 8GB 1600MHz KVR16N11/8-SP

I have a G41D3C BIOSTAR Motherboard with a Intel Celeron E3400 so I don't know if I would be able to use the memory at its fully.

I'd avoid it.

If you have existing memory sticks, get more of the same to avoid headaches.

Kingston.com should have a memory picker.

Thanks.

Well, the thing is that it currently only has 1Gb so I don't think another of the same will be very good.

Mixing sticks is not a good idea.
