Ram Query

Hey buds,

ill start off with my config

amd x2 phenom 550
ati radeon 4650 gpu
MoBo - ga ma74gmt-s2 gigabyte
Ram - 2gb ddr3 800mhz (atleast to what it shows on "cpuz") (Dram Frequency 668 mhz)
i will need to open it up and check it out once

the problem is that when i took this config the place i got the ram from, gave me a 2gb some odd company ram, and i took it, and i am guessing it is a 800mhz or 1033 mhz ram

now i want to update this to 2x2gb or i have budget to buy the 4gb too

also i will upgrade my os to win 7 64 bit as soon as i get the 4gb or 2 gb extra ram

but the question is that will the 4gb work along with the 2gb ???
or do i HAVE to sell the old one, because selling it just makes no sense ...

    Look, u can have Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226095

    $37.99 + FREE SHIPPING

    ----------

    For only $100 u can have Win7 x64bit : )

    So, its better to get 8GB of the RAM since it is at the all the time low.... IMHO

    -----------


    Than u will not need the old RAM at all, and it will be as it supposed to be.

    Is this your mobo? - based on that mobo.

    yea, but i dont stay in usa
    i stay in india
    and i dont think new egg ships all the way here
    though this price is very cheap, but still i donno if they ship to india
  5. No, newegg does not ship to India. I already tried them a few times. But I shop from Primeabgb & Techshop, here in India, depending on the availability and price variations. I've tried Lynx here but their packing is way to shoddy for my liking and the response is not very good when you complain about the packing.
    What is your budget? In INR?

    i stay in mumbai
    budget is 2000 +/- 2-300
    also the kingston and the mushkin are looking good
    but will they go along with my already existing 2gb ram ??
  7. What is the existing model number of your RAM?
    And you're lucky since both these stores are located in Mumbai, and if not, Lamington Road ain't far off.

    gimme a few mins
    ill just open the system up and let you know
  9. okay these are the images of my ram





    and this image shows its ddr3 only


    sorry forgot to mention

    Ram
    Dynet 2GB DDR3
    DMT 125 U6BFR8C-H9N0
    and on the other side its written
    evmt2g1333u8 (this i have no clue what it means)

    i guess speed is 1333
    but shows just 668 on my cpuzid
  10. You can go for any 1333MHz RAM remember you have just 2 Slots, so you have to make it 2 X 4Gb RAMs.
    Check the site out and find the cheapest 4GB stick available and get 2 of them.
    You've been using Dynet, so any of the brands mentioned on these sites is bound to work and work better.
  11. hey man, thanks
    but do u really think i need 8gb ??
    i mean i was working with 2 gb and it worked great till now
    so can i just exchange this for the 4gb or just got the 4 gb one in 1.5k something and im done with 6 gb of ram (if that works that way)
  12. Best answer
    Preferably, 2 Identical sticks of RAM, capacities, timings and voltages. That's the basic criteria , we can mix and match RAMs no doubt about that, but , we prefer not to because sometimes they cause other major issues with certain programs and other stuff.
    The more the RAM the merrier, believe me, enough is enough for a little while, when you start to unleash the potential of a rig, even the Max supported falls short.
    Either way, it depends on you, 4GB is like a Minimum requirement, but since you mobo houses only 2 Sticks at the max, it's preferable to start of with 4 and work yourself up to 8. You can go in for the 6GB combination now if you feel like it, if it works, good for you, until you can upgrade to another 4GB stick .

    I know : )

    How much is it for 8GB in India in $$$?
  16. alyoshka said:



    hahaha
    see the diffrence in prices man
    its like way way too bad man
    even though all of it is made in china, still we have to pay higher prices for them here
  17. Actually the price difference is there no doubt about it, but, here in India, having a 8GB module is something like not heard off. Especially since we don't have brands like the rest of the world, brands of RAM here in India are not even heard of anywhere else.
    Especially since the cost of it is like....OMG. I could make a rig in the same cost as much as the 32GB Bundle and the buyer would go mad and still feel like the cats whiskers.
  18. i know man its actually sh*t-headed

    im really thinking of doing something to order that 8gb newegg deal of muskin from us
    but again i have another friend who has a friend at lamington - so im waiting for his answer

    and yea ill ppbly go for the 6gb gig now and then upgrade it to 8 gb as the ram is still in warranty till may 2013 - so it would be the wise thing to do right ?
  19. Man, what a rip off!
  20. It remind me 1998 when I bought Nikon gear for $16 000 @ BH photo video, I would have to pay in Germany $45K!
  21. damn, what did u get ??
    i mean which dslr and lens ?

    I shoot with it if I needed.

    Used to owned the non VR version, heavy and specific to do only 1 type of the job. Not much need for it anymore. Traded the 400f2.8af-s for Nikon 200-400mm VR II.

    Most I shoot today, is Nikon 200mm f/2 VR II or Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8
    AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR
  25. I still love the F4... though. Have had it for ages now and still going strong although have very few Nikon lenses on me, mostly Vivitar ones.
  26. I have F4s too : ) Could be used as a weapon too.
  27. Can u tell me why people from the Indian region when they are asking for the driver or anything else, they almost always put Free Acer Support or free HP diver...

    Do they have to pay for it over there?

    Or is it because most links they found are through some driver finding pages where u have to buy the program that will find the driver?

    drivers are free here too

    i just guess they dont have enough brains to call the tele support
    they normally direct you to a server where they keep all the drivers, and even if you dont get it there i guess google is always there to support you

    but again whey ask here when they can send an email to the acer company for a link to the driver :))

    donno man, just some weird dudes i guess

    in india the tele support has really come up a lot
    even when i get something from us and use it here, and if they have support here they help me with it, and this is the same for the laptops too which have been bought from here and have expired from warranty
    they make it a point to solve the problems, if they see that you have bought the stuff with genuine bills and not from grey market
