I'm sure I don't have to tell anyone how many different types of RAM are out there.
I'm trying to make an informed decision regarding a MOBO purchase,so I need to understand more about what these numbers mean.
As I understand it, the numbers refer to speed that memory can be accessed/used (I think). So I'm assuming that DDR2 800 is faster than DDR2 400, right? What about DDR3?? I also see references to 'PC3 12800' and 'PC3 17000'.
Can someone tell me what all this means?
Whether you think you can or can't, either way you are right.
