Help With Ram


Capo

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

I have an older 939 board which I would like to bring up to 4 gigs of RAM and throw Vista 64 bit on it. Currently, it has 2 gigs of this RAM:

This is the motherboard I have:

Would I be better off getting another 2 gigs of the same or buying a cheaper 4 gig pack of something newer? What i'm mainly confused with is what type of memory will this board accept, can I put new memory into it? And if I can, should I?

 

The computer currently has this processor in it:

And a newly bought ATI 3680 512meg, AGP card.

 

Thanks for the help!

The motherboard will accept DDR1, only. There are no 2x2GB kits of DDR1 that I know of.

 

Get an additional set of the same memory modules. When you install it, make sure to disable CPC (ie. use a command rate of 2T). Make sure your chipset has adequate voltages.

I loaded 4gigs in my asus 939 board and vista sees it perfectly. I have no need to upgrade my processor. My computer is plenty fast for what I need, my ATI 2600 HD video card is crisp and clear, and after I install 2 or 4 1 tb drives on my silicon image raid I will have no need for a server for storage of my photos. im very pleased...
