Should I install now or wait???

Recommended Posts

I'm still waiting to get my rma'd ram back from OCZ. I'm thinking about using my old 2x256MB 3200 DC's for now and formatting & installing WinXP and all drivers. Would I have to do it all again once my new 2x512MB 4200 Platinum DC's arrive and I install them? Thanks

You can change the Ram afterwars without having a disadvantage.

The only impossible thing is to change the Mainboard with a different one.

no, you don't have to reinstall windows when you swap RAM by any means... you will have to resize your page file though since you will be increasing your total installed ram

Hello,

 

Yes you can go ahead an reinstall windows.

When the new memory comes.

 

# Turn the PC off.

# Remove the old modules

# Insert the new modules

# Hold down the insert key on your keyboard

# Power the PC (keep the insert key held down)

# It should boot the pc using all AUTO settings.

# Enter the BIOS change all your memory settings to AUTO (or adjust them if you know what to use)

# Save and exit

# And it should be ok.
