Memory upgrade advice needed please!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all.
Haven't been here for a while,
I'm thinking of upgrading my memory to 2GB.

Should I get another 2 X 512 of what I already have, or push the boat out and get 2 X 1Gigs?

I'd like to be able to run at the same speed 240/2400
and dual channel.

Appriciate any advice....

Andy

Indeed.
This is of course the main problem

Or should I just try to overclock the hell outta what I got

Also, if I got the same Corsair mem, but PC3200, would it run @ 240?

Try the memory configurator.net they always seem to have good prices ..I would also recomend that you buy 2x1gb sticks as 4 sticks would be a pain to oc ...Team xtreem chronus is a good price about £180 delivered it is also ddr 500 so would suit your needs perfectly...M

Get a 2x1GB set, team xtreem is a very good make. AMD's really don't like overclocking with 4 sticks so get 2.
