:cheesy: little info on my computer before i begin:-
intel pentium 4 processor with 2.66GHz
512MB DDR RAM
2 RAM slots used, 0 free
WIN XP SP2
3 HDD's : 120GB all together ....total of 67.52 GB's free
alrite then.. ive got 512mb DDR RAM at the moment, which i want to get to 1GB as im finding the comp going too slow to run certain apps, now i figured out my computer takes PC2700 RAM sticks (by opening up my comp safely) and that i have 2 slots which are used by 2x256 ram sticks
im planning on buying one 1GB ram stick (reptuable brand my friend says who builds pcs that commercial companys cant begin to understand :lol: ) so that means that 1 ram slot will be free.. is that a problem? im going to place the 1GB ram in slot number 0 as thats where the highest RAM value is meant to be.
another question, my current ram is 2700 (166MHz) and my processor has the following info available:-
board: MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL
bus clock speed: 133MHz
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies LTD BIOS version : 6.00 PG
now the ram stick i am buying will have a bus clock rate of 333MHz, am i going to be bottlenecking the RAM due to different clock speeds? as they are both different.. is that a problem?
also is there anything else i need to consider before i go ahead with the upgrade? thanks for the help am i about to receive!!! :cheesy:
