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.

DDR2-667 and DDR2-800 will work. There will be no benefits compared to using DDR2-533.

Welcome to the forums!

You may have to set the voltage for the new memory if it is over 1.8v.

Please tell us what your processor is, so we can recommend the appropriate memory. Also tell us if you will be overclocking.

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.

You need DDR2-533 at a minimum, better DDR2-667 (1 step up).
