Twin2x2048-8500c5


megabyte

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a Asus P5K motherboard, an Intel Core Duo Processor E6750 (2, 66 GHz), a Evga Geforce 8800 GTX/Ultra KO ACS3 768 Mo and Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-8500C5 (2GB 2X1GB PC8500 DDR2-1066 CL) and I’m running Windows Xp Pro SP3 32 bits. Would it be beneficial putting another identical Ram Corsair kit, making 4 X 1GB or else?

Thanks

With WindowsXP I would not make the transition and when you move to a 64bit operating system, you would be far better off to purchase 2 X 2048MB and not try to mix and match versions and hope that they work together.

AN806 can shed some light on the upgrading with a 32bit OS vs a 64bit OS.

 

In general, 4GB does work very well on 32bit XP or Vista but, you do not get the full 4GB for the OS. With the GPU that you have listed, if you install 4GB with a 32bit OS, you will likely see about 3.25GB which is still a very nice upgrade from 2GB.

 

As Derek noted, we do not recommend mixing modules unless you can add the EXACT same memory with respect to part and revision number. Due to the load on the memory controller, a 2 x 2GB kit is the best choice in this case.
