PC 3200 RAM won't make the computer run any faster, the speed is determined by the prosessor FSB speed. For advice on memory, as well as excellent quality and good prices go to Crucial click here or their very helpful support at click here
Nearly forgot. Gongoozler said "PC 3200 RAM won't make the computer run any faster, the speed is determined by the prosessor FSB speed."
This is true *unless* your motherboard *supports* the faster FSB speed. If not even if you bought the PC3200 RAM it would *only* run at PC2100 RAM speed. The good news is that DDR is backwards compatible.
well yes i know that difference but i mean...playing a brand new game, will PC2100 make it visibly worse as opposed to using PC3200s?
It depends on your graphics card and processor speed! I would say that it *wouldn't* make that much difference in games as *most* of the display work is done by the graphics card. You need a fast processor (3Ghz+) and good graphics card to run the *latest* games with a fast frame rate.
myphrill, you are accusing us of not reading the question properly. I don't think you're reading the answers properly. If your processor FSB is 266MHz which is probably the case as the memory is PC2100, then PC3200 won't go any faster. If, however you are putting PC2100 memory with a processor that has a 400MHz FSB then you will significantly slow the computer down compared with using PC3200.
your not listening even...you keep talking about putting a PC2100 in with a PC3200 and i havent even mentioned that. i dont know why you think i am asking about that. i'll wait until someone who reads my posts properly to help me thanks.
