Help selecting memory for Asus K8V SE Deluxe MB


tuckers

Recommended Posts

I need to upgrade the memory in a system with an Asus K8V SE Deluxe MB. I want to get as much RAM as possible on the MB.

 

It takes PC3200 ram, and has three slots. I don't think I can fill more that two slot with PC3200 though.

 

The manual says I can put in 1 GB sticks, but I wonder if I can now use 2GB sticks?

 

The current memory is 2 512MB ECC ram. Is there an ECC ram you make I could use? In the many years I have built my own computers, I always found ECC memory to improve system stability if the motherboard supports it.

 

What is the best ram product?

 

Thanks!

Unfortunately, no Socket 754 CPU supports 2GB modules due to the limitation of its memory controller. What's more, 2GB unbuffered DDR1 modules are extremely rare -- and astronomically expensive (if you can even find one); nearly all 2GB DDR1 modules which have ever been manufactured are all registered modules (which will not work at all with your CPU or motherboard).

So, I will have to stick with 1gb memory sticks.

 

If I want to get to 3 Gigs, then I may have to use a slower ram, since it doesn't appear that this MB supports more than two sticks of PC3200 ?

 

Does Corsair make a compatible ECC 1 GB stick?
