This article makes it sound as if RD ram competes well DDR ram in some circumstances. I have RD pc800 ram and I was wondering if DDR would create a huge benefit performance wise. Is the cost of switching worth it? I've got 256mb pc800 so should I stick with that get another two sticks of 128 or go with DDR?
Also, what is Dual RD ram and how does it differ from regular Ram? Can regular and Dual be used together?
What is the difference between EEC and non EEC RD ram?
Are K-byte, TigerDirect.com, and Corsair Ram chips considered to be of high quality?
regular DDR may be used in a dual channel mobo though you would want PC2700 (333MHz) or greater for good performance (especially for use with the new 333MHz FSM Athlons), 232pin RDRAM is 32-bit and is essentially 2x16-bit modules built on one chip so you only need one, 184pin RDRAM is 16-bit and a pair is necessary to run dual channel...in any case you want PC1066 RDRAM for good performance in a dual channel RDRAM sollution...the type (32vs.16-bit) depends on the mobo you plan to use.
ECC is error correcting logic, which for use in a home pc is unnecessary.
IMHO, whichever platform you choose, it would be best to have 512MB ram
hope this helped...
