damonpla.com Posted January 11, 2007 Share Posted January 11, 2007 Greetings, first time posting here. I am impressed with the replies to peoples' questions in this forum, so I decided to post one I have been pondering/researching the past few days. Just put together a system, I'm an average builder...this is my 2nd system. The ram I am using in my machine now is from my previous setup. (1GB Ultra PC2700 @166) I would like to purchase 2 GB for this new system, dual channel for it's obvious reasons. Eventually up to 4GB. After reading so many posts and googling this and that, I am nothing but confused on which ram I should buy for this A8N5X mobo. "Decisions, decisions." Within the manual of this mobo, it gives you a vendor's list, but I suspect it should be updated. The website shows the same list (not updated). My budget is about $200-$250. On with the question! Which RAM set should I buy? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145579 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1418374&CatId=1354 Both value selects, but one specifies DUAL CHANNEL, the other doesn't but in reviews people using in dual channel mode. ??? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145486 Before I write another paragraph, I will see what you guys have to say.
