Hello, I have seen some cheap ram on ebay click here and am considering buying it to upgrade my system. However, after emailing the buyer to check whether it is compatible with my system he said that I would need to check whether my system accepts 'High Density' RAM and the 128x64 configuration. I have been onto the crucial.com website to check what my motherboard can accept and it says the following....

184-pin DIMM Banking
3 (3 banks of 1)
Chipset
nVidia nForce2 Ultra 400
DDR SDRAM Frequencies
PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200
Error Detection Support
Non-ECC only
Graphics Support
AGP 8X
Max Unbuffered DDR SDRAM
3072MB
Module Types Supported
Unbuffered only
Supported DRAM Types
DDR SDRAM only
USB Support
2.x Compliant

and it also suggests the following ram....
DDR PC3200 • CL=3 • UNBUFFERED • NON-ECC • DDR400 • 2.6V • 128Meg x 64

Seeing as crucial suggests the above RAM, it seems like my system can accept 128 x 64 Ram but...

1) does 128x64 mean 'High Density' RAM?
2) what is the difference between high density and low density ram?
3) do you know whether it is compatible with my system?
4) I am not sure what ram I have already got in my system, but if it is low density ram, would it be compatible with high density ram?

I would be grateful for any advise

Thanks

if the ebay link would work but your board is capable of faster memory, PC3200 as crucial suggests. I have had experince with Asus boards and find them to be picky when it comnes to memory although only with the high quality stuff.

The difference between high density and low density is usually referred to as buffered and unbuffered, high density is buffered so I doubt again the ebay memory would work.

Have a look here click here
it should explain things a little more clearly.
