Default Re: ram...do i need the same typ?

Different brands will usually work together unless they are a different type. Also, if the RAM you get is slower than your current RAM, all the RAM will run at the slower speed. Try to make sure you get the same speed RAM as well. Otherwise, it shouldn't be a problem.
