[Easy question] Can I put 4gb sticks in my motherboard?

It's the board in my sig. On the reference sheet, it only shows support for 2gb sticks. My 2nd set of RAM failed ages back, so been stuck on 4gb, and it's just not enough. I don't want to go buy another 2x2gb kit, as it's chaper to get a 2x4gb.

Additional Comment:

Sorry, this was meant to be in AMD Memory. If a mod could move it, that would be killer.

I found this, maybe the answer is in there - the guy was trying to get 16GB to run on that motherboard but failed - Same problem you are facing, he is using 4GB sticks

Not sure if he got it to work - he didn't say.

I may as well get a new board. Been looking at a smaller system anyway. Thanks.

The board is supposed to support 16gig of RAM so 4Gb sticks should work.

Wow, you're right. I'll order a set of 2x4gb, and it they don't work, I'll put htem aside for a new motherboard.
