Compability with Corsair 2GB DDR XMS3200C2PT TwinX


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm currently in the process of shopping for some extra RAM for my system, but i'm unsure which RAM will be compatible with my current memory. I have 2 GB of MY-079-CS Corsair 2GB DDR XMS3200C2PT TwinX (2x1GB) CAS2.


I want to upgrade to 4 GB. (I have 64 bit Vista, so should be compatible I hear)


The question is which RAM (if any) is compatible with this and not likely to slow down my machine (by having different speeds). Would I be better speed wise to completely replace the 2GB I have at the moment with 4GB of same brand Corsair RAM. If so which would you recommend?


I don't really want to spend too much on this, but a nice performance gain for anywhere between £40 - £80 would be cool.


My entire setup is as follows:


Motherboard: MSI-K8NN4P MSI K8n Neo4 Platinum Nforce 4 Ultra S939 PCI-E Dual DDR 400


Processor: AMD-X242O AMD X2 Dual Core Athlon 64 4200 512 Socket 939Pin


OS: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium x64Bit OEM 1PK DVD


Graphics: Asus 8800GT 512MB GDDR3 Dual DVI HDTVOut PCI-E Graphics Card


RAM: MY-079-CS Corsair 2GB DDR XMS3200C2PT TwinX (2x1GB) CAS2


Storage: Seagate 7200.10 320GB SATAII/300 8.5ms 7200RPM 16MB Cache


Power: Nexus Real Silent 500Watt Power Supply Unit


Thanks for your help!

Mixing and matching DRAM is never a sure thing. You would do well to find modules that are the same revision as yours.
