or is that your MB's capacity? If you're running XP Home, your limit will be around 3.5 GB and any more will either be ignored or will cause trouble. What I'd do is head to Crucial memory and input your motherboard make & model number. It's doubtful you'll notice any improvement above 2 GB but don't get more than 4 GB.
Hey guys, I'm looking into possibly upgrading a few components of my PC, but I'm a bit out of the loop regarding current compatibilities between some of my hardware/software.
I really need to upgrade my RAM, but its the area giving me the most trouble. I'm currently running a eVGA, nForce 680i SLI 775 T1, LGA775, nForce 680i SLI, 1333MHz FSB,
DDR2-1200 8GB /4, PCIe x16 SLI /2, SATA 3Gb/s RAID 0+1 /6, HDA, GbLAN
/2, FW, ATX motherboard, with Windows XP Home, and I'm unsure as to what the best RAM choice would be that is compatible with this. I know I have a 4G limit at DDR2-1200 speed, but if anyone had some suggestions please let me know.
I'm also running a GeForce 8800 GTS 320 MB RAM, that I am thinking about upgrading or maybe running two with SLI, what do you guys think would be the better option?
Thanks a lot everyone.
