I need changes my memory 2 pcs @ 1GB DDR1 PC3200 with 2 pcs @ 2GB DDR2 PC6400 in Asus P5VDC-MX Motherboard. please advice. Thank you


Number of Memory Slots: 2×184pin + 2×240pin
Memory Standard: DDR 400/DDR2 533
Maximum Memory Supported:2GB

PC6400(DDR2 800) is not supported by your motherboard. Also max memory is 2GB. PC4200 is the fastest memory you can install. There might be a BIOS update available from ASUS website to increase the speed but you would have to check the site.

I have a asus p5vdc-mx mb


ok the board supports up 2GB of ram but you can only use 2 slots at a time you cant use 3 or 4 slots as they are diffrent ram chips so to use the full 2GB you can only get away with either 1X2GB ram or 2X1GB ram

Do I need to buy 2 DDR2 Ram for my ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard?


with rams, if the memory it has is higher than that of your cpu, the pc will not boot up or if it is too low compared to your cpu again.

thus, you say it has got two slots right, remove both of the 512's and insert the 1gig only, run your computer, i am sure it will boot up nicely. switch it off. put one 512, if it does not boot then you should know that your ram has an excess of memory that your cpu could not apprehend to.

post a coment if this does not work.

thanks,

wonder

Ram


Your motherboard can take DDR or DDR2 RAM modules.

Crucial says: "Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200,DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot." No sense getting 4GB since the max is 2GB.

You can get higher speed RAM (PC2-6400) because it is backward compatible.

I would go with the 2 X 1GB Corsair from the ones listed.

Or consider the options on Crucial's site. See this page:

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=P5VDC-MX

Two 1GB modules of DDR2 PC2-5300 run about $34 US.

(PS. Your 450W power supply will handle about anything.)
