Crucial were the ones that got it WRONG which is why I'm asking, firstly their scanner detected that I am currently running the Max 4GB already, then IF I wasn't that the PC4200 was the right choice, even though it isn't. AND the PC5300 is the SAME price.
My question is, will I really notice the difference between two identical machines one running PC4200 RAM and the other PC5300?
yeah adman 2, that's what I thought, my issue really is with Crucial, as they won't send me the correct part now, I have to wait until I send whats ordered back, get the refund, then reorder, OR order again with two payments, then send the incorrect one back :( GRR
Depends what you are doing. MY sister noticed a big improvement on her games when I upgraded 1GB to 2GB, but my nan didn't notice too much difference with the upgrade because she does internet and office work.
What do you use it for?
If you are running 32-Bit Windows which you more than likely are, then it only recognises up to 3 or 3.5GB.
