hello i was wondering if anyone could help me. I am currently using XP Pro and have 256MB SDRAM, however i have heard about DDR RAM from some friends saying that it is Double Data Rate, much quicker than my memory. However im not sure what to get. I have 2 DDR Slots in my Motherboard which is an "ASRock K7VM2" I have heard that EBuyer do their RAM would you recommend buying that or a more expenisve one like Cursial or whatever its called. Also what type of RAM would i require? I think 512MB is effectient enough? Thanks for your help. Regards Steve
Regarding buying memory, it runs at different speeds and if your CPU is a slow one then their is no point in upgrading it alone as if it runs it won't run at full speed you'd need to upgrade your processor as well. Post the speed of the processor you have just now to get more advice. Incidentely I too think well of Crucial, I'd avoid buying memory from Ebuyer, I did once and never again - twice they replaced it with more faulty memory, it took ages to sort out.
Most folk would be happy with XP 1800 (unless you are a dedicated game player) I would follow the advice of VoG. I have done business with Crucial on about 20 occasions and have never had bad service. Regards G.
