Thread: Rdram Or Ddr-sdram

  1. #1
    I am looking to upgrade my mobos and processor. Should i get i a mainboard that uses RDRAM or DDR-SDRAM. I tried to google for some info on this ram thing but i can't understand what they are saying.

    I am currently ASUS P4TM with 386MB (64MB*2 + 128MB*2) of RDRAM (PC800)

    I dun mind spending some money on DDR-SDRAM if it's good.

    Thanks!

    i also have rdram pc 800, and from what i can gather, the speed difference is negligible. so MY opinion would be to save a few bucks and buy DDR, cuz you can get more memory for the money of RDRAM. especially since they have DDR pc3200, which is what my brother has , and its wicked fast, even on a 1.8ghz P4. again, just my opinion

    RDRAM is outdated and no longer used on new chipsets, so it would be a bad idea to get a RDRAM-based motherboard because that severely limits your upgrade options.

    DDR SDRAM is much cheaper and continues to be developed, so it would be a good choice. You should select the speed which matches the Front Side Bus (FSB) frequency of your CPU.

    Yeah get the speed that matches your FSB, or you can get higher speeds and run them at the speed of your FSB, if you ever want to overclock.
