I was wondering if somebody could help a noob out.
I own a Dell Dimension 5100 with 512MB Ram.
Using CPUz, it tells me that I have two 256MB PC2-3200 (200mhz) sticks in place.
Can I remove these and boost it to 2gb with 4 512MB PC-4200 sticks, or do I have to stick with PC-3200?
In case it's relevant, the core speed reads 2793mhz,
Bus Speed 199.5mhz
Rated FSB 798mhz
Like i said, a noob, but all I want to know is if it's safe for me to buy a few PC2-4200 sticks and safely use them without blowing up my machine or frying the chips out of the motherboard!
I know the PC2-4200 is for 533mhz, but would it damage my system if I used them?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
