Hi friends,
I got P-4, 845GL NDSMx mercury motherboard (It has both the slots for SD as well as DDR). At present i have 128 MB SD RAM at 133 MHZ. Now, i want to upgrade my RAM to 512 DDR but the problem is that in market the 512 DDR RAM is available but its frequency is 333 or 400 MHz whereas in my user manual it is written that (SUPPORT DDR UP TO 266 MHZ).
So will it be fine if i get 512 DDR @ 333 MHZ, as 266 MHZ is not available.
Will it give any error or have bad performance....or is it fine????

Awaiting ur reply...........

No, it will not support 333/400Mhz, even if you buy DDR RAM of the same frequency. If you attach it, no harm will be done, but the RAM will not work at it's full potential. 400Mhz will run at 266Mhz, as that is the maximum frequency your board supports.

Hi digitized,
Thankx for reply.
So what should i do? I want to upgrade my RAM as soon as possible......so should i go for 512 DDR @ 333 MHZ because, though it won't give its full performance but it would be much better than my current RAM i.e 128 SD @ 133 MHZ.....
What do u say?

there is no problem in using 400/333 mhz ddr ram, whatever speed your motherboard support, ram will work at that speed. but you have to remove your 128 mb sdram. sdram and ddr will not work together. when you buy ddr ram stuck deal with your delear to accept your old sdram,
