Solved P5VDC-X memory compatability Tags: Motherboards DDR2 Memory Last response: April 13, 2009 3:57 PM in Motherboards Share kriswoj April 12, 2009 12:51:26 PM I've got a Asus P5VDC-X motherboard and only 512MB of RAM, so I was going to upgrade. My question is this: The manual states that the mboard supports DDR2 400/533, but will the other speeds work with it? Specifically, will DDR2 667 or 800 work? If so, will there be any benefit compared to using the DDR2 533? Thanks.

Please tell us what your processor is, so we can recommend the appropriate memory. Also tell us if you will be overclocking. kriswoj April 13, 2009 3:35:00 PM I won't be over-clocking. My processor is a Intel Celeron D 2.53GHz. My whole comp is quite old, and with memory so comparitively cheap, I thought I'd start to look to upgrade a little bit at a time. evongugg a b V Motherboard April 13, 2009 3:57:08 PM You need DDR2-533 at a minimum, better DDR2-667 (1 step up).
