None. That board will not support an 8GB stick of RAM. Largest stick it will take is 2GB and 4 of those will meet the system maximum of 8GB on board.

So if you are still set on the Kingston Value memory, then 2 sets of these 2x2GB kits would be the fastest 8GB. If you strayed away though you could do better.

For DDR2 800 cas 4-4-4-12, you could get this quad kit of Kingston HyperX or 2 kits of this OCZ Reaper HPC Edition.

For DDR2 1066 cas 5-5-5-15, you could get 2 kits of this Patriot Viper II or 2 kits of this Mushkin Enhanced Blackline.

All 4 of those would perform about the same and would be faster than the Kingston Value Ram I referenced up top. As far as picking those, I just went to newegg and found the lowest prices for good DDR2 specs.

Also, if you do overclocking, you could get yourself a kit or 2 of these GSkill DDR2 1200 cas 5-5-5-15, which would out perform those others so long as you can achieve the 1200 clock. These are what I purchased and they should arrive tomorrow:)

is there any other Intel Socket 775 ASUS DDR2 board which will take atleast 24GB


and which particular ASUS board will take one full 8GB stick

please advise :)

there's no such thing as a 8gb stick available to the general public, 4gb sticks are probably out of your price range, an 8gb stick would probably be $1000, were they available

...and by the way, why on earth would you want to spend the money to get 24gb of RAM on a mobo with an obsolete socket?

ya correct that's what i was asking myself yesterday

now if i go for IntelĀ® X58 / ICH10R motherboard , then DDR3 ram , plus core i processor

so the whole project is now going to cost me approx 40% more :ouch: 

what a waste 775 socket is, one cannot go beyond 8GB, :(

well for around $1000 24GB is available :) 

but surely it isn't for 775 :(

Exactly why do you want more than 8GB of memory anyway? Unless you are one of the few people who actually us memory intensive programs then you should be just fine with 4GB of memory. I have read plenty of articles on Intel triple channel boards where they compared 3x1GB, 3x2GB and 6x2gb and saw almost no difference what so ever between them in a series of benchmarks and various applications.

but did those tests run for 8 hours ?

and i am talking about currency and forex exchange and bond market applications

at least 6 applications for 8 hours each day, one app each on six monitors

i cannot loose even one second tick and there are 6000 data fields refreshing in half a second time on those six applications

we cannot afford even half a second data delay. :(

That makes sense. I would imagine that application would require plenty of system memory.

Sorry, I was just making sure you weren't wasting money just because bigger sounds better:)

4-6GB of RAM is plenty for what you need. But if you're having issues, it's probably time for a better processor.

so please advise now what do you feel how much memory i should go for

will 8 GB not make a difference at all :(

He may be right. I'm not really sure. I would guess that if you are not getting errors about running out of memory (if these even exist anymore, I haven't seen one in years), then memory probably isn't an issue. What are the rest of the specs on your computer?

Also is this app getting all of its information from the internet? If so a faster bandwidth could be a good step as well.

the rest of the specs are

P5N72-T Premium motherboard

IntelCore2 Quad Q9400

Hyper N520

UCP 900W

WINDOWS VISTA 64 BIT

HAF 922

memory ........8GB max

ya all the information is coming from the internet, i already have a 2MBPS dsl line

however since each app uses not more than 256kbps, 2MBPS is enough,

You should definitely, definitely get a faster connection. 6+ GB down and 768/up makes a huge difference over the lower tier connections, especially since you never really get what you pay for. If you're paying for 1.5Mb/s download, you're doing good to be getting 1Gb/s.

these applications are marked to a max of 256kbps

in INDIA 2MBPS is max for unlimited data download/upload

we get about 80% sync

my whole quest is about maximizing the RAM

can you please advise if a (Solid State) SSD drive will quicken the pace of data fetch if all my data and OS is on a SSD drive instead of a 7200 HDD

because a lot of data of these applications does remain resident on the PC and change happens from the PC

given that i can not go beyond 8GB :(

If there's any bottleneck it's probably the connection speed. This is assuming that you're not having memory issues, which you haven't reported, you haven't really provided much info at all. When you're running everything you need to be running, how much memory is being used. FFS you haven't even told us how much memory you actually have installed, so post more info since you seem hellbent on thinking the memory is the issue, when I can almost guarantee that 4-6GB is PLENTY.

first of all i am not "hellbent" :o 

i never use the word hell at all :non: 

ever

i am only asking if you are connected to four stock exchanges with six monitors for 8 hours each day will 24 GB make a significant difference as compared to 8 GB OR NOT !!!!!!!!!!

I really, really doubt it. I think the only bottleneck here is your internet connection speed.

i don't think the internet connection is a bottle neck because when i am using all six applications on my current PC with dual monitors and as per the bandwidth monitor tool the max data download only goes up to 125kbps to 140 kbps of the available max 256kbps :sarcastic:

You still haven't even answered my questions or provided info on installed memory and usage. No lower tiered DSL provider like you've got is going to actually provide you with 256kb/s download. Your 140kbps usage is probably using the max. Even if you lived 50 feet from a substation/switch, you're never going to get 256kb/s from that connection. Once again, if there is a bottleneck, since you are too frazzled to post answers to my questions, I can only assume that the bottleneck is your connection. Calm down and stop rolling your eyes at us, it makes you look like a complete ass.

hey BradyT88


can you tell me why shouldn't i


doesn't the location matters ?

as far as sourcing hardware is concerned ?

i am in INDIA up till march 31st and scores of international vendors do not even have a international warranty or availability like EVGA, ATI, ZALMAN etc in INDIA.

Ok... well that would make sense but I think this have pretty much been answered out and so just save your money, as upgrading your computer won't help, and see what you can do to try to get faster bandwidth. BANDWIDTH IS THE PROBLEM.

As far as your problem is concerned 2Mbps speed is more than enough to run those apps ! Now the bottleneck ain't necessarily bandwidth but client end as in your case I'd suggest installing cfosSpeed & using firefox/chrome for browser plus go for outpost firewall pro for max speed. While some might not agree with me on this but latency in realtime is a factor not only dependent on bandwidth per se but also on your browser/apps & firewall etc. I'd also like to ask whether you have multi-monitor setup or not ? If yes then I suggest you go for a dedicated high end graphics card as well. If not then get one since that many tickers on a single display isn't nice unless you have a pretty large display to fit them all in :wahoo:
