Any way I was wondering if that ram would work oin my main board. I do not see why it wouldn't but I thought i would double check. Also I was wondering if would be a bad idea to run my current 2 gigs of ram for 6 gigs total . Or is better to stick with identical ram for all of my slots?
My main board is a Biostar( since I am not certain of what all the numbers mean i will just them all)
lga775/fsb 1066 MHz
and the ram I am using is Corsair Value select 240 -pin DDr2 Dimm 333mhz
Alright! well I plan to get this ram and also a 64 bit OS, any recommendations on xp64 or vista64? I run mainly the SC3 suite (video heavy, Premier/ after effects) and 3d programs, Maya, Max and Zbrush. There should be no compatibility issues right? Just to double check I have a C2duo conroe E6400 that is fine for windows 64?
Is it always the case where you keep xp 32 installed or do most people run just one OS.
Are there other problems like main board issue I should consider before going 64 bit? When i built the system i made it with upgrade-abilty in mind.
Thanks in advance, the toms' forums have always been a great source of information from friendly people.
Most likely there WILL be issues with 64-bit compatibility. Look up the software dev's site for this.
You can multi-boot different copies of the same Windows, but you'll have to activate it. When you install a 2nd copy, you tell the setup to install it elsewhere. When you boot the pc, you'll see a plain menu of the installed os'es to choose from.
