HP Pavilion 516x Desktop PC
MOBO TriGem 2002052 (Glendale) --- According to HP Website
CeleronŽ CPU 2.40GHz
The HP website tells this about memory:
Memory type DDR
Memory speed PC2100/PC1600
Memory sockets 2 DIMMs (184 Pin)
I under stand the 184 pin but the speed and PC2100 I need help with.
I was looking at pqi POWER Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 333 (PC 2700) Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail from newegg. This seems pretty cheap at $69.99 at 1GB of RAM.
Also could you tell me what PC2100/PC1600 and PC2700 mean?
The part number on the memory in the computer now comes up as PC2700
What is the difference between DDR 333, DDR 400 and so on. Is this the speed in MHz?
Can you put as fast as memory as you want in any computer as long as it complies with DDR 184 Pin?
Will it just max out at the limitations of the MOBO or are there other considerations?
One more question please.
Are two sticks of 512MB any faster than using a single 1GB stick?
