I've posted here before, asking about a certain type of RAM, and if it will work.

The special for the RAM ran out, and its far too expensive for only 2 gigs. So here I am again.

My current motherboard: http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/motherboards/d946gzis/d946gzis-overview.htm

It accepts ram that is:

Two 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets
Support for DDR2 667 MHz and DDR2 533 MHz DIMMs
Support for up to 4 GBΣ of system memory
(See page for more details)

The only thing that is sticking out to me is the DIMM sockets, otherwise it seems compatible with the following ram:


Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

Now, it doesn't seem to be DIMM, it only says Dual Channel Kit.

Bottom question: Will this Ram work with my current Motherboard?
If it doesn't work, please susgest other 2 gig or 4 gig Ram sticks that will work.

Thanks a lot,

Those are DIMMs (Dual Inline Memory Modules). Every new stick of ram is a DIMM.

This just refers to the fact that there's electric contacts on each side of the module. The old style SIMMs (Single Inline Memory Modules) were phased out sometime in the 1990's and only came in 30pin and 72pin formats.

So yes, that looks like a good choice :)
