hello helpfull people!

can you give me some advise at this thing:

i've got an P5LD2 motherboard, and maybe it would be nice if i can upgrade my system.

BUT, i don't want to spend much money, i've got a 2 years old system and the psu is brand new Xilence 600watt sli ready.
currently i have 4x 512 mb ddr2 533 mhz!

but i was looking at the asus p5k mobo, but it doesn't say it supports ddr2 533 mhz.

my question is: can i use my 533 mhz ddr2 sticks on that mobo? or will it not work?


and thanks

no id doesn't usaully a board has 533-667-800 but with Asus P5K series they have "supermemspeed technology" which changes it to 667-800-1066 so your ram is useless. But now 533 is obselete and you'll be lucky to find a board that supports it now anyway

I would try your old memory if funds are tight. It might work. The p5k certainly looks like a winner.
