8k3a+ and 1gig ram modules
 
I plan to buy 2 * 1 gig of ram and to put it on my oldschool 8k3a+. A64 system will follow later this year. The price for the ram is very low atm so my idea is to put the ram now in the 8k3a+ and later use it for my a64 system.
(71 € atm for 1 gig. ram module in germany)

1024mb ddr400 cl2.5 Chip Configuration: 64Mx8 16chip 2bank
Part Number: MDT1024-400-16

Its the one at the bottom of this pdf: http://www.mdt.de/download/MDT_ddr184.pdf

MDT usually is a very compatible and often used ram in germany.

Is this ram compatible with the 8k3a+? I know that the 8k3a+ supports 1 gig modules, but this are doublesided and maybe it has problems with 2 MDTs?

2*1gig MDT Modules will work fine.

If you can, get a dual channel kit. I just bought a 2gig kit, and may save you headaches in the long run since that is the long term plan anyway. Stick sold separately are not guaranteed to run in dual channel mode at the recommended/promised speeds and timings. It will cost you a bit more, but I think it is worth it.
