Memory type

  bogsdollox1 14:42 10 Sep 2009

I have a BIOSTAR MS-6524 Ver 1 Motherboard and want to upgrade the memory. It currently has 128mb x 2 SDRAM.
I have seen all various types of memory advertised but am unsure of how many pins it has.
What type do I need and is there a maximum that it will accept.

Many thanks

Do you mean a MSI MS-6524?

If yes, then these will be compatible click here (ouch, that is expensive!)

You can also run their scan to confirm click here. G

Crossbow7 The older the memory the more expensive.
More tham 4 times as much over newer.
You wonder where all the memory in scrapped computers goes to.

I still think your best route is a barebones system.
click here= For what you pay for 2 X 512Mb pieces of memory £85. You could also then use your SATA drive.

Thanks for the input. A guy at work has a couple of memory strips suitable so will use them for now BUT will save up my pennies for a new barebone system as recommended.
