  1. Now I have fried my motherboard and I am shopping around. If the MOBO supports dual channel ram such as this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813135152

    does that mean that I need two sticks of ram at a time, I.E.: 2 512's to = a Gig. I have 3 512's and have no money to buy another so i need to know if I can do this and if this is a motherboard company (so I don't get a faulty MOBO)

    you need to RTFM to determine how many sticks and arrangement and types of ram you can use.

    in general, pair DDR ram. Some motherboards can use odd amounts. I have 3 matched sticks of 512 in my MSI motherboard.

    what is RTFM???? And have you even heard if ECS? looking at the reviews it seems like a hit or miss, and do you know of any other place where I can buy mobo's for cheap (not e-bay)

    What is RTFM? I had to think about it for a bit, and then ROTFL after I figured it out. :haha: Let's just say, Tedster is kindly suggesting you read the manual. lol.

    ECS? Never owned one, but have seen quite a few threads here by people who have problems with it....

    @Tedster: 3 sticks in dual channel? Cooooool. :grinthumb
