Hi all  ;
I'm not a techie  -  be gentle  ..  :-)

I'm considering a ram upgrade for my trusty old T500.
  core 2 duo P8400  @  2.26 ghz
Presently  Win 8.1 Pro  < originally Vista >  with  2 + 1  ram.
I recently installed a SSD  which worked great for improving
start-up and shut-down  -  but I'm wondering if I can expect
any more performance improvement  with  4 + 2  ram ?
  or  4 + 4  ?  < maximum >
I've read that it should be  2Rx8  not  1Rx8  < ? >
Not wanting to spend a lot of money  -  but I really like this
computer  -  it's perfect for my needs.

Any suggestions ?

The new ram that I see  does not mention  2Rx8  or  1Rx8
-  the used ram has it shown on the  sticker  photos ..

Here's what I'm thinking of trying  :

Used  4 gig  PC3  laptop sticks seem a bit rare in my area
and  run  ~  $ 30.
