Memory Compatibility Advice


Recommended Posts

I want to buy another stick of RAM for my PC. I only have two slots and one has a CMX512-3200 stick in it. The specs for the existing stick are:


Type 184-Pin DDR SDRAM

Capacity 512MB

Speed DDR 400 (PC 3200)

Cas Latency 3

Timing 3-3-3-8

Voltage 2.6V


Registered/Unbuffered Unbuffered

Heat Spreader Yes


I'm thinking of buying a 1 GB stick for the other slot. What do I need to consider as far as compatibility. I went through the website but had a hard time matching up the timing and voltage. When I finally found a match it was ECC Yes.


Advice? Recommendations?

OK. Got some Christmas money and now I'm ready to buy another GB of RAM. Here are the specs:


Abit motherboard KV8

FSB - 200 MHz

Processor - AMD Athlon 64 300+




CMX 512 3200

XMS 3200 v4.1


400 MHz 3338


As stated above, I have the 512 MB installed but want to add another GB. According to the Abit website It will support two 400 MHz sticks. Up to 2 GB RAM. What specific product would you recommend?


Thanks in advance.
