    Hi Guys!!!!!!

    As u can see from my signature I got 256 MB of RD-RAM as four 64MB modules in all four of my RAM slots. This is very insufficient for me.So am currently planning to upgrade to 512 MB.But the problem is RD-RAM costs a fortune guys - around 6500/- for 256 MB.

    My question is - It is known that all RAM slots have to be filled up for RD-RAM as it uses serial data transfer.Can I use a 256 MB module in one slot and 64 MB module in the other three so that I can upgrade the next month or something with another 256 MB module ?

    Any suggestions would be helpful guys........

    i dont think you can do that. The two modules should be of same capacity and same bus speed

    dude what are you talking about ??? Ofcourse you can install the 256 MB in one slot and the 3 in the other slots. The only thing is that the 256 MB will run on the speeds of the 64 mb thats all. But you will still get 192+256 MB for your system. No hassles. Heres more of a suggestion. RD RAM is no more in existence. Future upgrades will be a nightmare for you. Seriously consider getting a diff mobo and RAM such as the DDR RAMs.
