I want to upgrade my ram but Im having trouble finding the exact same part number that I already have in my pc. But I did find other ram from same brand name with exact same specs would that be alright?

Is this even a serious question? yes its fine.

I still have my old pc with ddr2 667 and 1066 ram, and 2 of them are LP sticks, the other 2 are normal size ones.

If you want to run the in dual channel it is important.

In terms of actual fps the difference is not high.

It all depends on your MOBO, if it supports dual channel or quad.

You cant do that, unless your brain-dead and you managed to create a post and ask a question, so I'm assuming your smart enough lol
