what memory?

  darthballs 10:19 23 Aug 09

I want to upgrade the memory on my pc,im currently on 1gb, 2 slots with 512mb in each. i used crucial.com and it came up with this, 1GB, 184-pin DIMM, DDR PC2700 memory module.(my motherboard is A Open MX46-800N Motherboard)

it seems quite pricey compared to makes such as kingston on amazon, but i'm not sure as to what to buy. does it have to have the same amount of pins, what difference does the mhz make?

Yes it must have the same amount of pins or it won't fit!

If you go for a different Mhz it may work but only at the maximum speed of the board - PC2700 - and if you mix the sticks it will perform at the rate of the slowest stick.

Crucial are offering the two 1GB sticks for £50 how much are they on Amazon

I would recommend you use the same pin sized same brand RAM on the PC, mixing the different brand sometimes may got compatibilities issue.

Hope this helps!

bremner, about the same price on amazon, give or take a few quid.
