I want to add more ram on my system.
Board: Gigabyte Technology 8IK1100 1.x 875 chipset
CPU: 2.40 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
RAM: 2x Patriot 256mb DDR400 single-sided dual channel
I mostly use it for graphic editing such as Photoshop, Illustrator and some video editing.
Upgrade to 1G by adding two more identical 256mb
Adding two more 512mb (totally 1.5G but mixed sizes)
Buy a new set of two 512mb double-sided(totally 1G on dual channel) and move the two original 256mb to the another system.
Which option makes the best performance or any better suggestion?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Wusy, if you mix Corsair 3200 and Kingston 3200 both with different timmings, will it still run in dual channel mode? Im trying to help someone in another thread that has this situation. Is it just when you mix different speeds of RAM together that the problem comes in?
Wussy, you're braindead, telling someone to go from a matched pair of memory to 3 modules in his dual-channel capable P4 configuration.
He'd be just as well off having 4 single sided 256MB modules as having two double-sided modules, so long as the modules are good enough to not run into timing issues.
