Hi all,,
Second post today already,,

Here goes,, :whistling:
My comp runs on PC 800,, RD RAM modules,,,working in pairs.
Have a chance to pick up another 512mb , but the model numbers are slightly different to the memory i already have in place.
My memory modules are all model " MR18R 1624AFO - CK8 "

The memory for sale is model " MR16R 082GBNI - CK8 "

Would this make any difference ??
I already have a pair of 256mb and a pair of 128mb, giving me 768mb,,would be nice to go over a gig,,, only if its gonna be compatible,,
Any advice would be most welcome, as i dont want to make a mistake,, its not cheap, cos its hard to find memory these days.

While motherboards do have a limit on how much memory they support, chances are you won't hit it at a single gigabyte.

Also, RAM rated at higher speeds (say PC2100 vs PC3200) will automatically underclock to match the clock speed of the lower RAM.

Hi seven,,
Thanks for that,,
I have bought the memory i was looking at,,,hopefully it will work when i get it.
My motherboard can handle up to 2gb of memory, which is pretty good, considering its age.
Have just bought an upgrade cpu as well,, so hopefully all will install properly when i get them.
cheers,, kev.

You could have checked with the crucial website they tell you the sppeds and types of memory compatible with your motherboard.

Hi , Warriorscot,,
Thanks for the advice,, wil remember that in future !!
I already know what type, and speed of memory my board supports.
My question was only if the different serial numbers were importatnt or not.
My pc runs on pc800 rdram, supported in pairs only, 400mhz speed, ecc.
The two memories should work together as they are the exact same spec, but i was concerned that the different serial numbers may cause a problem,,
I can see now that they more than likely will be fine,,
Cheers,,, kev.
