fawien Posted March 13, 2005 Share Posted March 13, 2005 Im going to be building a system tommorow and i have some questions before i dive into the build so i know what to expect. (my first build using next generation parts) Im very familiar with hardware from the older days but i havent built a system in at least 2 years. (athlon xp 1700 ddr266 my last build) My mboard is a ECS 755 a2 memory is corsair VS512MB400 2 sticks. Proccessor is a athlon 64 3000 my question is mainly about the compatability and speeds. i know the board/cpu combo doesnt like running double sided ram at ddr400 is this going to be the case with this setup? I was going to buy a single 1gig stick since i noticed the board would easily support one ds ram stick at ddr400 but the price was better for the 2 sticks and seemed like the cas was better on 2 sticks. Mainly just wanting to know for sure if i will be stuck with the ddr333 speed with this setup and if so what kinda performance may i see versus a different 1gig setup running at ddr400. Any insight or experience in this area would be great and i thank you in advance for any help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
