Thread: Q About Ram

  1. #1
    Ok, i'm looking to get a 512 ram card, but I was thinking, since my computer has 2 slots, would it be overkill to get two and use them both? My computer goes as follows....

    80 + 40 gb hard drivers
    2.13 gh processer
    Windows XP
    Radeon 9000pro 128mb video card
    intergrated soundcard
    48x burner + dvd player

    So should I use two 512's, or will that cause problems? (my alternative would be to go with a 128 and a 512)

    Thanks!

    1 gig of ram on windows xp is great

    only older versions of windows had problems with too much ram

    I believe you also have to make sure if your motherboard can support it to go that high

    Most boards can support that and more. I also have 1 gig with XP. Works great.

    the vast majority of boards which support agp and 2+ GHz cpu&#39;s will have support for more than 1GB of ram

    Thats strange because i had a 512mb stick and a 256mb stick and i thought it was running pretty fast with 768mb of ram. I got another pc so i took the 256mb stick out for the other pc and my pc ran faster with 512 mb and im using windows XP

    that&#39;s quite strange...

    i was talking about mainly 98 not liking more than 512MB of ram (unless you got a patch (which didn&#39;t solve totally the problem))

    Was that RAM all the same speed?

    Yeah it was same speed but i dont know if it was same brand. I would really like atleast 1gb of ram. My motherboard can take 1.5gb so i know it can handle it.

    Im gonna try some other brands.
