Ram Advice

  1. Hi.
    I have a Packard Bell iXtreme 2613 it has 3gig of ram and i want to put another 1gig into it.

    1 slot has 2gig the other has 1gig, so i wanted to swap the 1 gig for another 2gig as its so cheap at the moment.

    The serial numbers on the 2gig strip say

    2gig 2Rx8
    PC2-5300v-555-12-EO
    DDR2 667 CL5

    I was looking to buy said ram from "Memorybits" but my pc wasnt listed on thier site so i had to mail them my pc tech data.

    I did find what appeared to be a match on the site here

    http://www.memorybits.co.uk/shop/ki...b-dimm-240pin-ddr-ii-667mhz-kvr667d2n52g/5601

    But they suggested this one ?

    http://www.memorybits.co.uk/shop/ki...-ddr-ii-sdram-dram-dimm-240pin-d25664e40/6133

    Now the only difference i can see is the speed, mine is 667 and the one they suggest is 533 ?

    O, and price ;p

    Can anyone please advise me further.

    Thanks

    Vale

    DDRII 667 unbuffered will work

    Thank you, is there anything detremental about using 667 over 533 ? I just wanted to understand why they adviced me on this rather then what was in. Cheers
