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.
