DDR3 1066 vz 1333 Mhz?

Hi all,

Want to upgrade my laptop's DDR3 memory from current 4GB (2x2GB) to 8GB (2x4Gb).
Laptop is: HP G62-228CA Notebook PC - AMD Athlon II Dual-Core P320 2.1GHz, 4GB DDR3

DDR 4GB memory choices are:

1) Centon R1333SO4096 4GB Memory - SODIMM, DDR3 1333MHz, PC3-10600
2) PNY Optima MN4096SD3-1066 Laptop Memory Module - 4GB, PC3-8500, DDR3 1066MHz

Choice #1 (1333Mhz) seems faster, but can I use it in place of Choice #2 (1066MHz)?

Any suggestions/recomendations?

  1. You need to verify that the intended memory will actually work with your system. Laptops/notebooks can be VERY picky regarding the memory they will work with. I suggest you use the configuration/selection tools of Crucial or Kingston and then use that information to find the best value/bargain for your system.

    Going generic with a laptop can result in incompatibilities and exchanges.

    Good luck!
  2. Thanks. I'm new to this, but which "configuration/selection tools of Crucial or Kingston" tools are you referring to?
  3. Go here and Search by Manufacturer....


    Crucial will have something similar. Good luck!
  4. You really won't notice the difference with either one of those speeds. Like COLGeek said though, look it up.
