Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Dell Dimension e521,Athlon 64x2 3800MHZ cpu, with a Nvidia Nforce 430 chipset,4 slots, 4GB max; I'd like to buy memory but I'm uncertain whether Corsair "xms2 2GB (2x1GB) 240 pin-DDR2 800 (pc2 6400) dual channel desktop memory kit" will work. Please see: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145177&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL110608&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL110608-_-Memory-_-L5C-_-20145177
I don't want to spend the money without a second opinion. I've received a lot of conflicting advice.
I would not do it since your computer is recomended for pc 4200(533) and that chip set is recomended for pc6400(800) this matters for the life of the other components not to mention that your computer won't post and could cause dammage, even though your board supports dual channel ddr2 , and I think you should get some memory that is not going to wear your computer down so that you end up having to worry about other repairs also , stay within the recomended speed , so no i wouldn't use those chips in there , and i wouldn't advise someone to do that , but i can see the deal you were looking at!
