Recommended Posts

Ok. memory noob here. these were recommended. but which is best for gaming?

And are there others not listed that are better (and compatible of course)?

They only listed 1GB I want 2GB. Cost not an issue so what's best?

Welcome to the forums, NETCRAMMER!


For 2GB on your setup, the TwinX2048-3200C2 would be the best choice.





p.s. FYI, I believe that the A64 systems do not have a problem running CAS 2 on the 3200C2 modules. Not official, but I don't think you'd have a problem.

The manufacturer MSI has the following post on their site for this board.

Will I have to change these settings with with the recommended memory?


Due to the High Performance Memory design, motherboards or system configurations may or may not operate smoothly at the JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standard settings (BIOS Default on the motherboard) such as DDR voltage, memory speeds and memory timing. Please confirm and adjust your memory setting in the BIOS accordingly for better system stability.

It would probably boot just fine, but I'll list the settings regardless, for you to manually set or double-check.




DRAM Clock: 200 MHz

DRAM Timing (overrides SPD values): Manual

System Performance: Normal

SDRAM Bank cycle time (or tRAS): 6

SDRAM Bank Interleave: 4

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3

SDRAM RAS-to-CAS Delay (tRCD): 3

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2 (2.5 on AMD platform)

Command Rate: 1T

All other settings are motherboard defaults.


Additionally, I'd set the DDR Voltage/VDimm to 2.75 or 2.8 volts.





p.s. That warning basically says this: Don't use extremely cheap modules as they won't keep up with the system.
