Memory Q for New Mobo

By stirgy

  1. Hi. Easy question here. I am looking to buy a "ECS GOAL3+ + Sempron 3000+"
    combo Mobo for a PC I'm working on. Any advice on what the best way to go with Memory?

    Mobo's Memory specs:
    "Memory: 2x 184pin DDR-400/333/266/200 DIMMs, Single Channel, Max Capacity 2GB"

    Could I use a dual channel/dual stick RAM? what could that do to a "single" supported board?

    Thanks in advance!

    Here's the answer (it's frightening!)
    There is no such thing as Dual Channel DDR Memory Modules.

    ie Dual Channel Ram, just means that the two Dual Channel (labelled) rams, can work in a Dual Channel motherboard.

    Therefore you can use any ram, that your board supports, including dual channel (dual really meaning single but can work in dual !! It's very hard to explain)
