qassoom Posted August 28, 2008 Share Posted August 28, 2008 Hello guys! How are you doing? I am in the phase of upgrading my RAM. I was interested in one of CORSAIR RAMs (specifically CORSAIR DOMINATOR with DHX Technology TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF 4GB PC2-8500 (DDR2-1066) DDR2) but my friend told me to check its compatibility with my current motherboard. Mine is an Intel DG31PR with currently a memory set of 2048 MB DDR2-SDRAM (specifically DDR2-SDRAM PC2-5300 (333 MHz) - [DDR2-666]). Question One: is it worth it paying $147.50 + over seas shipping of around $20 to get a better performance (as performance matters me more than capacity, although I am looking for both). Question Two: what is the maximum Memory Clock / I/O Bus Clock that my motherboard can handle - so that to know whether the suggested TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF would work or there is something "better" than this one! :sunglasse Out of the subject question: do you think I have a very good motherboard that can handle futuristic upgrades - or that I should wait like 6 - 12 months before considering a quad-core & DDR3 jump? Any extra piece of info would help much for a beginner like me! Cheers for you & the guys @ Corsair! :biggrin: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
