And you can get 1600 ram. Because 1600 are in fact 800 because its double rated. Even if your mobo supported lower it wouldve still work coz it will just run at a lower speed. But the important thing you must look at are the voltage for the ram. Some mobos support different voltages
The current ram is 1.8v
Is there a price difference between 1600 and 800?
Also trying to figure out which would be cheaper
2x2gb or 4x1gb?
Also there is no memory conrol like you described so
I assume the memory is synchronous?
