Just download more RAM instead. You can do it for free.

I can't speak for you situation specifically but I upgraded my laptop from 4 to 8 gigs a couple of years ago and don't remember ever getting a message about hardware changes. This was on a W7 PC.
Shut the f*** up you're ruining it!

"Indian giver." So much more racist than I think you guys realize.

16gb of ram is reaaaaally hard to use, he won't notice any performance issues assuming he doesn't have something set up to use from each of each stick at once instead of just taking from the total (pretty sure there's a term for this, cant think of it off hand). Basically instead of using just 4 of 16, he's using 1gb from each 4gb stick, basically same thing, but spread evenly, if that makes sense. it won't be a problem unless he works for like nasa and has to run ridiculous programs.

Replace them with strips of bacon.

He'll notice then.

You intend on building a PC and you can't answer that question?

Good luck!

You can always just ask him if you can take the RAM.

Anyways, RAM isn't going to break the bank if you're building a new computer. You can get 8GB for $90.
