Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Can you have to much Ram for a processor?

Motherboard is a Gateway D865GLC currently has 2-256MB DDR PC2700 and 2 open slots. Online diognostic Crucial memory stick thing says each slot can handle a max 1gb card. I am looking at put 2- 1GB DDR400 PC3200 or DDR333/PC2700 in the empties for a total of 2.5 GB. My Processor is a Pentium 4 2.60 GB 800 MHZ FSB w/ HT. Is quintupling the RAM like this outdoing what the processor is capable of, or should cause no problems? All of the RAM is Non-ECC and unbuffered. Intel 865G Chipset is on the motherboard. Thanks for the time and input.

You'll be fine. If you have been on crucial you know then whether the modules need to be in matched pairs, which is what it looks like you are doing. The only limitations on RAM are when you go to 4GB using 32-bit processing. It will most likely not all show. But with 2.5GB, you should be humming along quite nicely.

System reguirements to inrease ram memory


Ram Memory typically operates at half of the frequency rate, ('Speed'), that the Processor's -> FSB does.

Your motherboard supports Processors that have either a 400MegaHertz Front Side Bus, (400MHz FSB), or 533MHz FSB, or 800MHz FSB.

(Northwood Core for 400MHz FSB. The rest is in the other solution I provided)

Processor has a 400MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram ram memory that is 266MHz.
(PC2100)

Processor has a 533MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram ram memory that is either 266MHz, Or 333MHz.
(PC2100 and PC2700 respectively)

Processor has an 800MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram that is either 266MHz, or 333Mhz, or 400Mhz.
(PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively)

NOTE*
When using a processor that has an 800MHz FSB, and using PC2700, (DDR at 333MHz), the PC2700 ram memory will run at ->
320MHz.

JEDEC has set the voltage requirements for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts.
'Performance' ram memory that is DDR Sdram may use higher voltages.
Not recommended unless you know how to overclock.

Although the motherboard, and the ram memory module may have SPD, it doesn't always work,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_presence_detect

A lot of times you are faced with going into BIOS Setup, and changing the ram memory voltage, IF BIOS Setup has this feature.
This is why I say overclocking experience helps tremendously.

You want Low Density, Unbuffered, Non-ECC, and a CL of 2.5 for PC2700, and a CL of 3.0, (3) for PC3200.

[Why would anyone want to run PC2100> Lol! ]

    Gigabyte GA-81EXW memory chips


    Any 184-pin ddr ram should work on this. You can actually use pc3200 (ddr 400) ram as well. Pc2700 ram is ddr333, and a higher speed ddr ram like pc3200 will work just as well if not better than pc2700, it will simply go down to the speed that the processor requests the ram run at. It's all backwards compatible, faster ram can run slower if the computer needs it to run at the slower speed. Depending on the price you can find as long as you get 184 pin ddr ram either pc2700 or pc3200 with work fine with your motherboard. Peter
