Question about MSI 845GVM-V (MS-7057-010) Motherboard
Can i put this pc5300 on pc3200 slot at msi 845gvm-v board of mine?
i need it to upgrade my memory to 1 gb, even it may be upgrade to 2gb max. need your solution for this one... or may be there is another alternative? cause i heard that pc5300 is better than pc3200...
thank you all...
PC5300 or more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM,
and if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module.
"PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible.
PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins.
PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins.
DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length,
but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position.
You need to get the replacement ram all the same type ie - DDR or DDR2
And yes your motherboard should accept 2GB max
