Upgrading Memory

Recommended Posts

hi

i want to add 1 or 2 memory stick to my pc in signature:

 

now i have 1 stick of kingston value ram KVR400X64C3A/512 mb

 

according to the table of memory configuration of manual of dfi nf3 250gb (pag.19)

 

i can add 2 stick and go to ddr333 2t if the sticks are double rank

 

and to ddr 400 2t if the sticks are single rank

 

question my actual stick of ram is single or double rank ?

 

thanx

 

p.s.

 

i want to obtain the same level of o.c. @271 of fsb !

It will depend more on your CPU's memory controller than the motherboard. With 3 X 512 and my Newcastle I can run 1:1 at 2T up to 218 HTT after that I have to start using dividers to keep mem speed below 220. With value ram it may be a real rough deal as they will more than likely not be the same chips as the one you have now.

2 sticks is better. A gig of ram will allow you to do everything you need. I can run BF2 on a 64 player map and never have any lag with 2 X 512.

my use is for video editing ... and dvd authoring

 

and if i sell the kingston ram and buy 2 new stick 1gb + 1gb = 2gb

 

suggestions for memory to buy (low spending)

What is your budget? If value ram is the only thing in your budget pick up a 2 gig kit of your preference and plan on tweaking. Plenty of people have gotten value ram to run on these boards(myself included) so it can be done.
