Issues to consider before buying RAM
How many memory sockets are open? If there are none open, you will have to replace your current RAM with higher capacity ones.
What type of memory sockets are open? SIMMs? DIMMs? The form factor is important for choosing the right RAM. Also, putting SIMMs into a board that is currently using DIMMs may result in speed compromises.
What kind of memory are you currently using? SDRAM does not mix with EDO DRAM, and few other types don't mix at all.
How much money are you willing to spend? SIMMs/DIMMs come in several speed grades, each at different price levels. It may be more cost effective to buy one large chip instead of several small ones, or vice versa.
Determine whether you have Tin or Gold sockets.
Determine if you need to buy your RAM in pairs.
What maximum amounts of RAM/Cache does your motherboard support?
DDR3 is the next-generation, high-performance solution for CPU systems. DDR3 memory are twice as fast as today's highest speed DDR2 memory products. Select your DDR3 Memory from the following.
