HI

Im using my brothers pc with a GIGABYTE GA-8VD667K motherboard (2 DDR RAM DIMM slots with one of them containing a stick of 256MB PC2700

I recently bought a stick of CORSAIR 1GB DDR 400 (PC 3200)

If i was to put the 1GB of DDR into this machine, would i encounter problems?
My main worry is that something will short circuit and its not my PC, could that happen?

Will the memory automatically adjust its self to the 400/533Mgz Front side bus or is that a BIOS configuration you have to go thru?

Big thnx

Pat

According to Gigabyte's website, this motherboard only supports memory upto PC2700. Therefore, I do not think the Corsair PC3200 memory you bought would work. I doubt it would short circuit, but you may encounter other problems.

It should work but only as PC2700 speed ram, it might not though but pc2700 ram is cheap as chips.
