Only one problem. Socket 939 isn't compatible with DDR2. If it was I wouldn't have 2 gigs of old DDR1foozy said:For 500 dollars you could build yourself a very basic AM2, 939, or 775 system that would probably outperform any old socket 478 system - it would also be much, much more upgradeable in the future.
For example, this promotion gives you a Socket 939 mobo/cpu combo for under $100. Toss in a gig of ddr2 thats another 100, hdd/optical thats another 100, that leaves 200 for you to play around with case/psu/video.
Its your computer though
The "512MB DDR2" refers to the video card's on-board memory. it has nothing to do with your system memory.Needle said:I have a question. The graphics card I'm going to get says 512MB DDR2 Memory in it's description. Does that mean it NEEDS 512 MB DDR2 memory or that it has it?
