Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
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.
