Vostro 15 3559 RAM upgrade



I am currently looking into upgrading my laptops RAM and I am unsure of whether to buy 8GB or 16GB. I also need some help with understanding the Slots: 2 (2 banks of 1). Does this mean that I can put in 2x8GB to make 16GB or does is support it with the original 4GB if I add in a 16GB? Or is it a case of taking out the original 4GM altogether and replacing it?


I am upgrading for better usage when gaming as my laptop cannot really handle it and I don't want to buy a new PC/laptop. 


Hope this all makes sense!

@asmith1997 Thanks for contacting us. I pulled up your system and you have two slots for memory and can be upgraded to 16GB of memory using two sticks of memory. You can only max out the system to 16GB, so you would have to take out the existing RAM and upgrade using two 8GB memory modules to upgrade fully.  A full list of avaiable upgrades can be found here. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
