Hi im new and need a quick answer.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

In a few hours i will be purchasing a LANPARTY PRO875B for my intel pentium 4 2.53.

 

Currently i have 2x 256 ram PC2100 and i would like to know if it is worth me upgrading to PC3200 ram, and if so would it be worth buying two sticks of 512 or 1 stick of 1g ram.

 

Will buying it in 2 slots instead of one effect the performance of the system, i am aware that whatever ram i buy needs to be of good quality.

 

Thanks

PC3200ram 2x512 in dual channel mode is great preformance over the slow pc2100.

 

Also 1 gig or ram is way better as games right now, need 1gig to run smoothly.

Having a pair so you can enable dual channel will double your memory bandwidth and match the bandwidth of your FSB. This stops the memory bus from being a bottleneck and is one of the main reaons for using a dual channel 400 memory bus with a 800MHz FSB P4.
