I had an account here back in 06' but must have gotten deleted. So I made anew!
My question is (I googled, and searched to no avail first) is about a PC I just built while cleaning my house and finding old parts.
I put Linux (slackware for now) on to my box. The Box has 512MB RAM right now, and i want to upgrade it to 2GB, so I can run Debian or A Ubuntu derivitave with ease. I am looking on ebay, and there is RAM there for like 10$ per 2GB stick.
The problem I am having is this: The RAM speed is the same for low and high density sticks, the 2GB 667 is 10$ and it is high density, the 1GB 533 is 10$. The problem I am having is deciding whether to get the 2GB or the 1GB. Now I know you're think wtf, obviously the 2GB, and I am as well. The only thing I am worried about is the AD description,
As you can see, the chinese seller is saying it is ONLY good for AMD chipsets. As my mx-1333 is an intel chipset, it worries me. But I fail to see the logic. I believe I had a 2x2GB sticks in it before I built my monster rig and discarded the now-repurposed Nix* box.
So, is the chinese person wrong, uneducated, or is he right.
I don't want to have to spend 20$ for 2x1GB sticks when I can get the same in one stick for 10$.
(I don't care about the unbranding. I have used unbranded RAM in the past on most all of my machines with no problems whatsoever. So spare that chat) ;D
Any info is appreciated.
