Question about Intel ASUS X Series Motherboard P4P800-MX REV: 1.04 (ASUSP4P800MXUAYZREV104)
I JUST WANT TO UPGRADE MY MEMORY. THE PROBLEM IS THAT I KEEP SEEING ALL OF THESE WARNINGS ABOUT, "HIGH AND LOW DENSITY MEMORY". I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED A PROBLEM LIKE THIS. I JUST WANT TO KNOW IS THIS REALLY A PROBLEM? SOME OF THE ADS GIVE LISTS OF CHIPSETS THAT WILL ACCEPT HIGH DENSITY MEMORY STICKS. I NEVER SEE AN INTEL CHIPSET LISTED. WOULD YOU PLEASE CLARIFY THIS PROBLEM FOR ME? THANK YOU
I'd suggest using a memory tool, such as the one Kingston memory has: http://shop.kingston.com/default.asp?bannersource=comju Enter the make and model of your motherboard and it will list the correct modules for your board. Crucial Memory has a similar tool.

This mainboard uses DDR400 memory
A High Density module is by far much slower than Low Density module at the same speed rating say PC3200/DDR400. High density modules are FAR CHEAPER, less than half the price when compare with low density modules and hence high density modules will NOT work on 90% of today's PC chipsets. LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatibility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets. HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility and are VERY SLOW.
So AVOID those 'High-Density - 128Mx4 config 1GB modules which is usually UNBRANDED and is NO NAME!
With this in mind it is far better to use low density Ram. Most RAM cards today are double sided, it all depends on the capacity of the RAM card.
Please rate this solloution as it it much appreciated.
