hi all, im looking into upgrading the memory in my laptop (to crank it up so that it copes with photo editing a bit better, before i replace it in the near future - cash allowing)

i have an Acer aspire 3053wxmi

form what i have deduced i can upgrade to 4gb max in 2x 2gb

i have contacted a couple of retailers and asertained they have come up with the following:
this one from CCL
and this one from offtek

my questions are ..
firstly are these the same spec?.. ive had a self taught crash course in DDR2 today, but got a long way to go :wink:
i cant get my head round 667mhz verses 1.8 V.

Secondly bottom line .. with reference to clock rating, bandwith, latency ( got the jargon.. havent a clue what it all means)... what is the max /fastest/best memory that i can upgrade to ?

many thanks in advance

Based from the information, they are pretty much the same. The fastest ram you could get is PC2-5300 which was the linked ones.
