Hi, I am wanting to upgrade the RAM on my machine from 2x 256 to 2x 1gb to try and help it deal with the memory hungry stuff we have installed.
I know I need 2x 1GB 184 pin DIMMs, but what I don't really get is the PC2100, PC3700, and the stuff about 266MHZ, 400MHZ etc etc. How do I know which one I need? The current ram is PC2100 266Mhz. Would it be better to stick with this, or could I go for the higher numbers without doing the system any harm? (I have found what looks like a good deal on some 400Mhz sticks)
The motherboard is a matsonic MS9147c and the processor a P4 at 2.4Ghz if that makes a difference. Someone told me it's something to do with Front side bus but I don't really understand what that is.
I'm normally a competant user, but this is making me feel a bit thick! Can anyone advise me please? Thanks!
"Each memory slot can hold", If you look at the report it tells you what you CAN have, not what you have GOT, DDR PC3200,DDR PC2700,DDR PC4000 relates to speed and of course there is a price diference.
Go with what you can afford safe in the knowledge that they will work with your system..
