I want to upgrade the RAM, however, it takes RDRAM (PC800 or PC1066) which is too expensive. The 8250 in question has a bus speed of 533 MHz. Currently it has 512 MB of PC1066 RDRAM. My question is can I replace the RDRAM with 184-Pin DDR SDRAM (or something else) or do I have to stick with the RDRAM (512 MB of PC1066 RDRAM is around 240 bucks plus I have to buy it in pairs). And if I stick with the RDRAM do i have to continue with PC1066 or can I switch to PC800? If I switch to PC800 I’m guessing I’d have to ditch the PC1066 chips right?
I'm just gonna play devils advocate here and say if you have an amd system and you want to put in more ram it has to be the exact same type as the kind in the other slots, even the manufacturer. So even though the intel system uses diffrent ram the amd systems have to have the same exact type in each slot.
