  1. This might sound silly please do help!!

    I am planning to get a ram upgrade

    from my 512 MB DRR 266 to 1GB DDR 400

    how much performance gain can i expect since this entire upgrade purpose is for performance gain

    say if i upgrade to 512 MB of DDR 400 will there be any performance gain and how much will that be.

    thanks a zillion for any valuble insights. :angel:

    If you get 512mb DDR400, it may still perform worse than its equivilant DDR266, depending on the CAS Latency, if the 266 has a latency of 2, it will perform better than DDR 400 at CaS Latency 3. I'd recomend the 1gig DDR400, because it's larger and potentially faster, but make sure it has a latency of 2.5 or under for best performance.

    Thanks flincy, I am planning to go for 1 Gig of Transcend DDR 400 Ram it is around Rs.1500 ($ 35) costlier than the kingston one which are very prevalent here in india.

    i think the cas is 2.5 but will have to check that.
