Just wondering, as i start shopping for new memory, and know nothing about it...i have been suggested some good memory i think, but i was also told...errr...read, that my core i7 will only recognize something like 1066? i have no idea what that means....ALSO, i read that ill have to go into a BIOS and set speeds? i just want more memory, and for it to work safely, for gaming.
p.s. If you are new to choosing RAM, your motherboard
manufacturer should have published a QVL (Qualified Vendor List)
which itemizes each of the RAM makes and models that have
been tested to run AOK in your motherboard with that CPU.
If that QVL did not come on a "Support CD" with your motherboard,
then it will most probably be found in the printed User Manual, and
it will very likely be found at the manufacturer's website for
that motherboard as well.
ok so, from what i've read, windows vista 64 and my core i7 920, will only process speed @ 1066....so this means is should buy ddr3-8500? is that right? or if i put faster stuff, like 10600, it will run @ 1066 just fine? my MOBO is factory dell stuff i think...
i went to crucial.com and they gave me a list of compatible memory off their website.
