I've got some old RAM kicking around which I'm thinking about putting in a budget build. Will it work with the mobo if it has the correct number of pins or is there more to it than that? Thanks. (BTW. I have tried looking on the company's (Samsung's) website but they don't seem to have a memory compatiblity utility like other companies)

there should be a sticker on the ram module. type that number in on google, it will eventually take you to the specs of that stick. now the boardyour gonna put it in, be sure its the same socket (sd, ddr, ddr2, etc) also make sure the board supports that much and the speed (pc2100, pc3200, etc)

What kind of motherboard are you planning on using in the build. Go to google with the Motherboard info and you should be able to find out what kind of ram it uses. I.E. ddr,ddr2, etc. As long as you are using the right kind of ram like the whole ddr, ddr2 thing, it's kinda of hard to go wrong. The site should give you the pin connector info. Just write down the kind of ram it is, the pin #, and double check that your motherboard will support the amount of ram you wish to install. Hope this helps.
