Thread: What Ddr Ram Should I Use On My New Mobo

  1. #1
    hi

    im building a new pc and all i need to finish it is the ram and hdd
    now this is my new board mobo
    *the pic is slightly diff but the details r the same*
    As you can see its cheap n nasty but it should do i only wanna play games and watch/encode films on this one

    to make up 4 the shoddy board i also have a athlon xp 2600+ sat here waiting so my question is what ddr ram should i use with this mobo/cpu combo bcause someone said that using 2gb of ddr 333 is better than using 1gb of ddr400 and im damned if i can find out (i read the pinned topic/webpage)
    so does anyone know which ram setup i should use

    thanx

    Is your Athlon XP 2600+ a 266MHz or 333MHz FSB?

    333mhz

    this is the exact one
    cpu


    i saw a thread which got me thinking my case is only 300w and ive got a 128mb ddr geoforce 4 in it aswell so is it powerful enough

    cheers

    My choice would be the 333MHz DDR memory.

    300 watts should be enough but that's the minimum required.

    i would sugest u get a the bast MB u can that one is not too good ur MB is the hart of ur system so dont skimp on it the only thing is as inportant is ur CPU

    ya we need to see ur FSB speed 1st but unless u plan on doing a lot of video editing 1 GB of ram is more then enuff for regular use ( even 1GB is eniff for most video editing) and by the time comps will need more for regular use ur system will be out of date and u prob wont be able to use ether type of mem there will be some better by then

    take the mony for the extra ram and get a better MB

    edit
    I see u posted mhz wile i was typing so stick with 1GB of ddr 333 and get a beter MB
    u could still use 400 but it would only run at 333 any way

    OMG! thats a load cheaper but alas i have no credit card -my choice not the banks and isnt that proccessor better _ that 512 l2 cache thing
    and its expensive cos its a shop at the end of my street

    well i want lights so i will have 2 see bout upping the psu i think i will have no choice then
    cheers on the ram info i will fill it with 2gb of 333 then i think it should run preety sweet ::i could change the mobo but at the mo its gonna have 2 do xmas n that
    Edit: ok scratch that if i had about 90 what sort of board could i get

    1 GB of RAM should be plenty.

    I would also recommend you look at the Barton core 2500+.

    Yeah my friends has an awesome system with 512MB, and it runs FAST and never slows down for any program. But he doesnt do video editing or anything..
