Hi all I have 2 x 256 Mb. DDR400 and use Gigabyte K8NS Board. My board has 3 RAM Slot and I need +512 ddr400 but 1 Ram slot is empty..
1- I sell 2x 256 and Buy 2x 512 DDR400
2- I buy one 512 Ram for 3. Ram slot ???
What i make ??
I'd buy the additional 512MB card, and replace the other two one at a time as the money becomes avalible.
Or if you have the money already, scrap the 256MB cards and replace them with 512MB cards, AND buy another 512MB card. More RAM is always better after all!
Just see what balance of RAM to Money will gie you results you're happy with.
forget that, just toss the 2x256 cards and then fork up the cash for a 1GB stick, then when needed up grade to a second one, and a third if neccessary...though doubtfull it will ever be so.
Prefer 2x512MB . 1 GB ram is good enuf .
Ok TNX for all answer
I ask my computer seller friends and sell my 2x256 and buy 2x512
I give little diffirence (5-10$)
look your computer up and find out its max per slot then go get the max per slot.. Thats what I'd do, but thats prolly going to be expensive.. So save money for a little bit sell what you got then go get the best you can.. Or you can do it my other way ...scap the whole comp buy a new one and upgrade that one..lol HAVE FUN!
more RAM = more POWER!!
make sure u get a motherboard compliant RAM btw....
Just make sure you get RAM that is supported by your MOBO and buy as much as you can afford.
More RAM = No use.
The ram u use is directly dependent on the processor u use.
Say u r using a P4 1.4 Ghz processor and putting 1 GB RAM in your mother board, what is the use? The processor can transfer a certain amount of data at a time. If you add RAM to that data proportionally you get the peak performance. But if u add excess ram, The processor is going to store only a limited amount of data on the ram and then delete it. So you get the peak performance but a waste of RAM.
I would also recommend 2 X 256 MB Ram coz RAM has the tendency to fail more often than any other computer parts. so if you use 2 RAM even if one ram fails you can have the other one untill you can replace the failed one.
To use more than 512 MB RAM you must put your machine as a web server coz your web server application will use thousands of instances of the website in a time and that a larger RAM would increace the system performance. But for home or office use even if the computer is fully loaded a 512 MB of DDR is enough.
If you surely want to go for 1 GB RAM then go for 512 X 2 coz having a 512 and 256 combination wont work
