Question About Ram?

Recommended Posts

I can use SDRAM 133 or PC2700 DDRAM. On my motherboard I am using 1gig of pc133sdram, would it be better if I switch to pc2700 ddram 512 and would FS2002 run better? Just wanted to get your thoughts.P4 2.25GHzWin XPWD 80 GIG 8MB CachePNY GF4Ti 4200 64MBECS P4VXASD2+SB PCI512 Sound CardThanks Gerald

Hi Gerald,P4s are hungry for memory bandwidth, so yes you will see 10-15% performance increase. Also depends if your CPU is 133FSB(533) or 100FSB(400). Check if you have options in BIOS for running RAM in ansync mode 3:4, 4:5 etc.Cheers,Petar

Ansync is option for running memory independently from CPU FSB, so for instance if your CPU is FSB133 by default DRAM ratio is 1:1=DDR266.Changing DRAM ratio to 4:5 would give you DDR333 which is actual spec for DDR 2700 memory.These settings are only for DDR memory and actual ability to change DRAM ratio is chipset and bios dependant.Petar
