JDookie Posted December 9, 2005 Share Posted December 9, 2005 I'm new to the gaming computer world, and am trying to get my foot in the door with some quality products. I have a Dell XPS 400 w/ Pentium D 3.2 processor, and have already upgraded the video card to an ATI Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition. The system came with PC2-4200 DDR2 memory (2x256mb), and I'm looking to trash that for some quality performance pieces totalling 2GB. It has four slots and is upgradeable to 4GB total. I know for a fact that PC2-5300 memory is compatible with my system because Dell sells it as a direct upgrade, but like I said, I'm looking for "performance and quality", which is why I'm looking at Corsair. My questions: What options do I have as far as memory goes? I did the memory configurator, but it only shows the CMSS1GB-533 as the only available 1GB upgrade for my system. Which is better? Going with four 512mb sticks, or two 1GB sticks? Next, what's the baddest memory I can put in this thing?? I was looking at the 667mhz modules (PC2-5300). I figured if 533mhz is better, than the 667mhz would be even better yet. ?? Please point me in the right direction. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
