Purchasing RAM Hi mdsaeed, I was hoping you might help me with this 1: What's the diff between say, 4gb of 667 or 800Mhz ram and 2gb of 1066 or 1200? Is less Ram at high speed a better option? I guess it goes without saying that 4gb at 1200Mhz would be ideal, but I dont think I can afford that. Mobo is ASUS p5q se/r

DDR3 modules can transfer data at the effective clock rate of 800–1600 MHz using both rising and falling edges of a 400–800 MHz I/O clock. In comparison, DDR2's current range of effective data transfer rate is 400–800 MHz using a 200–400 MHz I/O clock, and DDR's range is 200–400 MHz based on a 100–200 MHz I/O clock.

decide urself, depends onur system support and ofcourse ur buying capacity.

DDR3 is better

What is the maximum memory on a Gateway MX8734 laptop?


Hi Anon
the Gateway MX8734 motherboard has two memory slots each capable of handling a maximum of 2gb of ram.
So, 2gb is the largest single ram module, and 4gb is the largest total amount of ram.
If you are uncertain if your motherboard is capable of handling a 4gb ram upgrade then check with the memory suppliers first.
In practice I have always found that the performance difference between 2gb and 4gb of ram is slight.

Understanding RAM characteristics


Regardless of the speed RAM is nothing more then a container for running programs. Hence the more ram you have the more programs you can run concurrently (at the same time)

Speed has to do with how fast the running programs can be put into and accessed within the RAM.

Hope this helps

Buying RAM


Ok first off, you're right. 4GB at 1200MHz would be ideal, but there's only one problem. Alot of computers don't have a 1.2GHz front side bus.. so even though the ram can run at that speed if you're frontside or backside bus can't keep up it's pointless. Fist figure out how fast your FSB (front side bus) is and buy your ram accordingly. Ideally, 1GB at 1.2GHz will out perform 2GB's of 667MHz. But there are other variables to consider, but i'll spare you the essay.
Also keep in mind, if you're replacing ALL the old ram in your system then you'll see a nice performance gain, but if you're only adding to your existing ram, the new ram stick(s) will only run as fast as your old ram.. so if you have a stick of 1GB at 667MHz, but buy two new 2 GB's at 800MHz, the new sticks will only run at 667MHz, because ALL your ram must run in sync. 
Hope i answered your question!

RAM comparison for asus p5q se/r mobo


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Interesting choice which would seem to boil down to quantity over quality. Personally, I would rather go for quality, that is the highest motherboard acceptable/allowable speed of the memory. Even if the memory is only 2Gb and you can run it at max speed (with latency 2) it should dramatically improve performance. Additionally, the 2Gb (low compared to 4) could be compensated with an efficient memory management of the OS (hopefully XP and not Vista). Memory usage/management could be tweaked at the registry, msconfig, Startup and general ways of how the PC is used.

It would be appreciated for a postback/update if and when you have installed your choice of memory and hopefully, I can be of further assistance with a few tips on Memory usage/management; tweaking.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
