    DDR-2 Help

    My server will come with 256 sdram of DDR-2; Can I put other ram types in its slots? Isn't that stuff 184 pin?

    I am thinking about buying a gig of ram for a Dell 420sc server, but can't afford a $300 stick of DDR-2

    What are my options with the Intel Pentium 4 and celeron chipset?



    Can I use some PC3200 or what?


    Please help - thanks

    1) There are many P4/Celeron chipsets by different manufacturers (SIS, Intel, VIA, etc.). Be more specific.
    2) If your board uses DDR2, then you most likely need DDR2. I don't believe they're backward-compatible.
    3) Did you think about looking in the manual for that Dell server to see what RAM it will work with?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    it has ddr2 slots. Only ddr2 will work

    I am wondering if ddr2 pc3200 at 400 mhz is the same speed as normal ddr pc3200 at 400mhz. I mean... if they are both 3200 at 400 mhz, which is faster?

    Is there any point in getting a ddr2 board without getting some ddr2 4300 ram?

    I currently have 512 of ddr pc 3200 and it has smoked every online game I have played since early '03. I want to be ready for the next wave of online games.

    (i should add that it smoked along with a radeon card)
