I want to upgrade PC from 512 MB RAM to higher value. Can you suggest the right RAM size and type to use.
CPU: DualCore Intel Pentium D 820, 2800 MHz (14 x 200)
MotherBoard: Intel Coryville D945GCL, FSB 800MHz,
Existing RAM: 512 MB (2 ranks, 4 banks), Unbuffered DIMM, DDR2-533 (266 MHz) in one SLot
. Another slot is empty.
I have read articles in this forum as per which
DDR2 / 2 = Intel FSB / 4
Since i have a processor with FSB 800 MHz, DDR2 should be DDR2-400. Does this hold good even with Dual Core processor?
Does it matter which DDR2 Module type is used like Unbuffered, Single Sided Double Sided?
Can I have existing 512 MB with 533MHz in one slot along with 2 GB MB with XXXMHz in other slot?
Please suggest me the solution which would be the most appropriate for the existing system.
