If I may be so bold as to ask you a question direct. I have an Asus A7N8X deluxe MoBo.I have 1 stick of 512 mb ram.(PC3200 DDR400)(I do not know which slot it is in at present) Can you tell me please what would be the best way to upgrade my ram. ie One more stick of 512? two sticks of 256 and depending on your answer which slots would I put them in.? Thanks in advance. J
ps. because of the cost,would 2 stick of 128 be a good alternative?
yes. The board does support Dual channel,that is why I thought there was an advantage of selecting the correct slot. MartinT-B suggested in another thread that Slots 2 and 3 (Blue) or 1 and 3 Black/blue was best, but I do not know the make of the ram I have,and I was under the impression that they would be best if they were a matched pair.. By Matched does it just mean the same ram?
would it be best then to buy 2 stick of 256 (or 128) as a matched pair and put them in slots 2 and 3? if so where would I put the 512 stick I have now and because it is not matched wouldt that be detremental? J
