Im guessing they dont work together right
DDR ram says nothing, be more specific: brand, model, speed, number of sticks and what size they are
ok, well heres the site i got it from http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6889888697
those are cheapo-depot RAM sticks, but should still work fine
oh really, thats great now i dont have to spend more money!!. but Even though they're cheap, are they still considered fast?
yes and no...
they have a fast clock cycle speed of 200MHz, but they operate at loose timings.
RAM is like a CPU, the clockspeed isn't that important because it's how much it can do within each clock cycle that determines it's performance. think of your RAM sticks as a celeron processor, it can run at a fast clock speed, but cannot compare to a Pentium4 at the same clock speed. the P4 will blow it away.
a RAM stick that operates at fast speeds and tight timings is a "fast" RAM stick. your RAM operates a fast speeds, but slow timings.
i hope that helped explain it a little better
Yes it did, thanks, but how much slower will it be? in comparison to a good set of 512 sticks.
meaning 2 x 512mb.
I found an awesome mobo on Newegg.. ECS c-19.. that thing call handle 16gb of memory... Endless possiblities with this board... Only 77.00 .. Dont know about the ECS company... I stick with ASUS...
it's a long read, but this article explains RAM timings and how they affect peformance
