Yes I'd like to know if I'd be able to put DDR 400 ram on my pc. This guy wrote in a forum that you can put ram that is faster then the one for your computer, is that true? He said your computer will adjust it to a slower speed. Anyways please help.

Thank you

Yes, you can put ram that is faster in your pc and yes it will work... maybe! No guarantees! But why would you do that? When it comes to choices, the correct ram is always the best way to go. Installing faster ram will gain nothing.

Go to Corsair.com, Crucial.com or Kingston.com, (in that order :tazz: ) and run their ram checker for compatible ram for your motherboard.

It's wise to spend a little more money on good ram to avoid problems later.

Good luck!
