i was thinking of upgrading my Ram to 1 gig. but i don't know which brand or whatever thing to buy and the cost of the 1gig ram. can anyone one tell me? thank you i hope people who read this topic reply me thanks. CAN SOMEONE JUST REPLY ME ABOUT RAMS AND COST OF THE RAM THING?!
Hey jeffrey159 - outlw6669 means that you have 2 slots for ram - and into each one you can add a maximum of 1gb memory stick/module (DIMM is just a term for computer memory stick). If you wanted, you could also put 512mb of stick into each slot (2x512mb = 1Gb), but since your motherboard supports a maximum of 2GB of ram, you might as well place 1GB stick into each memory slot (hence you will have 2x1Gb = 2GB ram). You have a good CPU - so you will see a HUGE performance gain from using 2GB - although, from a practical standpoint (read: financial), even 1GB will be just fine! Ciao!
omnimodis78 thanks for telling me all this. i'm going buy 1 gb stick since i left 60 dollar zzz... so when i ask the shop person for the RAM should i say. " i'm buying a 1gb stick DDR PC3200?" or what should i say so i could buy a correct memory stick
Say: "I would like to buy a 1 GB stick of DDR-400, also called PC-3200".
They will show you models with different latencies.
Lower latencies command higher prices. It's not really important that you get a low latency.
ECC memory will work with non ECC memory. ECC memory is more expensive. You don't need ECC. Installing ECC memory in a non-ECC board will simply run without ECC (Error checking correction). It'll just ignore the error checking bits.
You're welcome! evongugg's suggestion makes good sense, but honestly, don't worry too much (or at all) about latency issues. Get a good brand name ram but don't spend a fortune. Always remember that raw numbers do not mean stable/reliable performance - but if you get a quality name product, at least you know that your ram will perform as it should and you won't be back at the store in 6 months replacing a cheap memory stick. Of course, even the best of the best can be DOA (dead on arrival), but this would be the exception, not the rule when it comes to good brands. I have another suggestion: when you go into a computer store, do not (!) say that you are a newbie, simply let the person know what you are looking for - you run the risk of the sales person upselling to you if he/she knows that you are not knowledgeable, and you might spend extra money you absolutely would not have had to spend! Good luck!
