Asus A7V8X Mobo

  accord 22:37 30 Oct 2003

I have the above mobo fitted with 2 256mb PC2700 Ram.

Simple question, can i add another 256 or 512 ram PC2700 to this or do i have to do it in pairs like the old pentiums used to.

Thanks for you support.

DDR can be put in, in single strips but if you have win98 or win me do not go over 512mb

PS if you only do normal Taskes you are wasting your money going over 512mb

i do image manipulation, powerpoint and alot of spreadsheet work. also have the usual NIS 2003 and others running in the background.

PC spec: XP2000+, 512mb PC2700, 40Gb, the increase in ram should make a difference ???????? or am i wasting my cash ??????

fair enough

over and out

i think that motherboard has only got 2 slots for ddr ram am i right?

if i am then you have took all your slots up

if I'm wrong then that doesn't surprise me

FYI: the mobo has 3 slots so you are right in being wrong :-)

that doesn't surprise me ;-)
