Looking to buy new memory for my A8R32-MVP Deluxe motherboard.....

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am looking for suggestions as to which ram I should buy. I currently have Supertalent PC3200 @200MHz and I really need to upgrade from the generic brand, meaning I am going to let the supertalent collect dust. Does anyone have any good suggestions for a two gig upgrade that I should do? Price range of $175-$250 and I would like to overclock it.

Thanks for any suggestions you may have. +1 rep for any good suggestions that help me narrow down my search.



Here is the post off the Asus website.



The A8R32-MVP Deluxe is essentially the bigger brother to the A8R-MVP -- a decent board in its own right, but lacking some of the higher end features when compared to the A8R32-MVP. A RealTek ALC822 audio codec makes A8R32-MVP sing in 8 high-definition channels, a step up from the 6-channel ADI AD1986A sound found on the lesser A8R. Memory wise, the A8R32 will hold up to 4 gigabytes of (DDR 400/333/266 memory), ECC or non-ECC -- whatever you prefer. Another obvious upgrade up from the A8R is the dual PCI-Express 16x slots with CrossFire support. The RD580 is positioned to be ATI's flagship CrossFire chipset, and so far, it is definitely looking that way.

I would seriously think about upgrading to AM2 or Core 2 Duo.

Performance DDR RAM is expensive as compared with DDR2. You can get qualtity DDR2 800 for just $110 (G.Skill HZ), while quality DDR 500 will cost you $250 (mushkin redline or similar). That's a $140 difference.... with the sale of your current CPU/RAM/MoBo, I am sure you can raise enough funds for an excellent upgrade.

I second what Chozart said, but if you are stubborn, look at these.

In that case, he might as well use the Supertalents. He'll be needing RAM that overclocks pretty good... preferably DDR 500

Doesn't matter. That's the max speed at STOCK.

I used DDR 500 in that same exact board. It's the same like using DDR2 1000 in a board that supports up to DDR2 800 at stock speeds.

When you run stock with RAM at 1:1, your DDR 500 will indeed run at DDR 400 speeds, but once you overclock, you can increase your HTT to 250MHz before RAM even hits stock speeds!

I had the G.Skill HZ DDR 500 in an Asus A8R32 MVP deluxe and hit DDR 590 speeds with it.
