I'm confused plz help me!

Hi all, I want to buy some new ram but I'm a little bit confused with all the pc3200, pc3500, pc3700 and pc4000 i would like to know what is the best for good perfomance in gaming... my motherboard is a Biostar u6886d Via P4M266A. Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.6Ghz/512K. It is better to have only one pin or a double channel I'm not planing to overclock my memory.

So that all any help would be greatly appreciated ;-)

  1. Are you talking about the Biostar U8668-D? If so whihc version is your mainboard? It should be in your mainboard manual, printed or CDROM.

    The U8668-D v7.x supports DDR266 i.e PC2100 DDR SDRAM and DOES NOT SUPPORT DUAL CHANNEL.

    Check out these links for further info.

    You can also consider Hynix if you are budget conscious.

    To summarize, what you need depends on what games you like to play. If you play games with high frame-rates, then you have a serious problem my man!
  2. well I want to play game like farcry and doom3. I'll be getting a radeon 9800 pro soon and I wanted to add some ram before playing these game. Am I better to buy a new motherboard too and if yes which one would be a great choice. can I just take my current processor and put it into a new motherboard?


    I figured out what I'll buy
    512Mx2 OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel
    Asus P8P400 Deluxe
    ATI Radeon 9800 pro

    I would like to knwo if I can put normal ATA HD with a SATA motherboard <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Gaijin_Online on 07/26/04 00:19 AM.</EM></FONT></P>
  3. I wouldn't skimp on a board, I recommend the Abit IS7 for nearly any P4 build. It's only $90.

    These boards support both ATA and SATA. Both. As in, you can have both types of drives at the same time, or one kind, or the other kind, as you choose.
