Sdram question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
For older systems that run Sdram would it be better to run just one Stick of 512MB or 2 sticks of 256MB
???
If so would there performance gain?
Thank you in advance.

Doesn't matter, those "old" chipset don't use dual or single channel. What it matter is the: more ram the better.

It wouldn't matter that much either. The latencies are not going to play a big roll, and since that RAM it's not going to be running in dual channel mode, (like I said) go for the highest amount of RAM possible that the motherboard supports.

It could range from 256MB max to 512MB max to 1GB max per dimm-slot, so get as much RAM as possible.
