Can anyone tell me which motherboard is in this Gateway? I bought this
second hand and I would like to add more memory.

The bios is listed as: GB85010A.15A.0046.P13.0108201551, 8/20/2001

Thanks.

Lisa

Lisa,

You can start by running www.belarc.com you will tell you about your PC
and software memory etc.

Lisa,

You can start by running www.belarc.com you will tell you about your PC
and software memory etc. It is the same listing a mine. So I believe
that you would take RDRAM. You might want to take the cover off the case
and take out the memory to make sure.

Thanks, Ron,

Belarc says the board is Intel D850GB AAA49507-904. Do you or anyone else
know, if board is standard or was modified by Gateway.

BTW, according to Intel, the board uses Rambus (PC800 RDRAM) which is very
expensive. Any one have a suggestion for less expensive source?

Thanks.

The PC800 RDRAM goes in pairs. If you want more ram it's going to cost a
bit. Prettty much to put 2x 256mb sticks in there (for another 512 total)
it'll run about $80 a stick if you buy online (Samsung brand, what came in
my Gateway). I was just on the Bestbuy website the other day, a PC3200 DDR
two pack (2x256mb) costs $159. RDRAM is much cheaper than what I paid a few
years ago.

Lisa,

We have the same board I am sure that is modified by Gateway.

Back in March I purchased 1G of Memory. Gateway wanted more then this
and it did not have a lifetime guarantee. It looks like it is running
about the same as I paid for it back in March. Depending with you are
doing at a minimum 512 if graphics 1 GB.

Remember in pairs matching, I still would check to see what it actually
in your system especially if you bought is second hand.

It's an Intel GB850 board. Uses PC800 RDRAM - either 45 ns for a 400 MHz
bus CPU or 40 for a 533 (40 will work with a 400 as well).

Must be installed in pairs.

Ed: Thanks for the advice. One further question: is there a faster CPU
that I could put on this motherboard. Currently, I have 1.8.

Thanks.

Any 400 MHz P4 will work - there is still a 2.8/400 but it's expensive. The
2.6/400 is the best value - about $150.

You cannot use any of the 533 or 800 MHz bus P4s on the 850 boards.

Bios upgrade will be required for the board with a cpu 2.0 or higher too.
