Which ram should I stick with?! :) Upgrading tonight.. so need response ASAP! :)
 
Ordered some ram from mushkin to build up a linux box with my old MSI ddr board.. The price was so good.. I ordered 2 of the PC2100 512 mb sticks ($77.00 ea I might add)..

My question is... What would be better for me to do.. my main gaming rig (Windows XP) will be using my Gigabyte 7V-RXP KT333 mobo.. Should I stick the 1024mb of PC2100 ram on that board.. or should I keep the 2x 256mb (512mb total) pc2700 kingmax ram on it? Would double the pc2100 ram be better than the pc2700 stuff? :) Thanks.

Talk about a tough question. I read that the difference in performance between PC-266 and PC-333 is quite small. You can test both RAM configurations, then give us the story. Please. TIA!

You got one of the high performance mobos. Depends how far you are going to overclock it. Till then, I can't give you any advice. Give me some numbers.

I would go with 512 MB fast RAM for the gaming rig..

Ill give my usual non-answer

As swapping memory over is so easy try overclocking the new 512mb sticks if theyre overclocked performance beats the PC-2700 then use them in your main rig. If not run the other way around.

If i had to choose then if put the 2700 in your overclocking box, generally higher FSB will give bigger gains than having more than 512mb ram (512mb is plenty for almost all applications)

Yup, same here. Swap RAM about, and see what it does for your Sandra memory benchies....:)


(then come tell us all in Benchmarking!):)
