My main machine is quite ancient and I've decided up finally break down
and upgrade. My present mobo has a dual core CPU and 6gigs of RAM.
In theory the board supports 8gigs of RAM but in actuality I cannot get
it to work reliably with more than 6gigs. It was so old it did not even
have USB-3 so the mobo must be ten years old or more.

My new mobo arrived and I put in some DDR-3 I already had but the
machine would not boot. Reading the manual I see that my two, 2 gig RAM
sticks are not supported. (it requires more than that) Decided to order
two 8Ggig RAM sticks and max it out at 16gigs.

This thing better work once I get the RAM
