Hi everyone...

I have decided to increase my memory to 512 MB. My motherboard supports 2 RAM modules each of specification 184 pin DIMM between 200-266Mhz. Currently I got a 256 DDR. So i was going tru shops and always find that different RAMs are of different speeds like 300Mhz, 400Mhz..etc. But my motherboard manual specifies that it supports 200-266Mhz..so does this mean that if i am buying a RAM it must be between 200-266Mhz? What if I buy one which has more speed but the same DDR DIMM 184 pin configuration...help me out here..thanks...

The DDR memory (Double Data Rate) fetches the information twice per one cycle. What that means is if the memory is DDR400, it effectively works at 200MHz.
I suppose that what you have there is the amount of DDR RAM currently in your computer (256MB of DDR memory), not the type of the memory.
Hope this helps...
