RAM vs. Speed?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting ready to upgrade my Celeron for an P4 800 fsb, and drop in a vid card in the 8X AGP slot. I want this thing to go as fast as it can, especially for gaming. Right now my comp has 1 stick of 512mb pc2100 ram. I'm going to buy another 512 stick, only it will pc3200(most my MoBo can handle). Would I be better off having 1 GB of pc2100? or pull out the stick of pc2100, and just have the 512mb pc3200?

Is this confusing?  :roll:

Appreciate any advice...

ay.......

1st - you will not dual channel if your motherboard doesnt support it

2nd - his motherboard doesnt seem to support it

3rd - stepping it up from 266mhz to 400mhz - you will see a noticable difference if you just have 512mb of ram compared to 1 gig at 266mhz

I would personally not go for samsung brand - if you have $ go with either kingston value ram or corsair

- dual channel means basically that your mobo will have 2 memory controllers - i believe that it doesnt have anything to do with the ram itself - its just an advertising scheme ;)
