    EDIT: I've moved this to my website, so that I can keep it up-to-date more easily, and so people can see it when the board is down.

    It's also a good deal easier to navigate.


    RAM guide @McBriens.net

    nice guide

    one little teensy weensy point though: you say that the fastest ram currently available is PC3200, however, i've had a PC3500 (434MHz) for a few months now (Corsair XMS3502)

    Cheers Mr Lamsey for this, I&#39;ve been annoying a few folks on here asking them about this kinda stuff lately (Shout out to 2nd Gen Noob ) This will go a long way to stopping me from ending up with a small electrical fire on my hands. Thanks pal

    OK, how about I say fastest standard types? PC3500 isn&#39;t really a common type, although it may be popular with overclockers, I don&#39;t know .

    That answer has been added.

    "ECC RAM has extra error-correction control built into the circuitry of the chip. It is recommended for use in important computers such as servers or real-time workstations.
    Non-ECC RAM is cheaper and more than adequate for a normal desktop/laptop system."

    I consider my computer important, at least I let it think so...

    Nice guide Lamsey.I am forever getting mixed up with all the different types of RAM around these days and it&#39;s good having this to refer to.

    You might want to add that you need two cooling fans if you&#39;ve got RDRAM, it gets extremely hot inside.

    had a mini fire once allready, a tiny cable came to close, it didn&#39;t touch, just a little too close. Once again wasn&#39;t my fault, the store repaired it and put in an extra fan.
