4 DDR modules for DDR 333/400 dual channel architecture
If you have 4 ram slots and only 2 are filled, you just need to match the speed of the two you currently have, they can be any size(500mb, 1gb, etc). I'm not sure you'll be able to find DDR ram anymore though.. and NO you cannot use DDR2 ram.
hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? friend sad to say there is no way you can use DDR2 because your motherboard MSI K8MM-V doesn't support DDR2 it is DDR and SDR RAM. so you better use DDR having higher freq.to upgrade your pc. thats all good luck.hope i helped you.
This motherboard only support DDR type of RAM up to 4GIG ,
333 MHz this are the support speed of DDR RAM, so you can go ahead upgrade up to 4 GIG of RAM and that will make your computer very fast...
Make sure you have the RAM seated in slot #1, and that you do not have DDR RAM installed as well, as DDR2 with DDR RAM will not work. Also, make sure the RAM you bought is on the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) for that motherboard. I know I have had problems with ASUS motherboards and OCZ ram before.
The ASUS P5RD1-VM takes the PC2700/3200 DDR SDRAM DIMMs. You can upgrade your ASUS P5RD1-VM to up to a maximum of 2.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory. For best system performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your system i.e. 1 GB.
does your mother board ddr2 compatible? do you have the manual of your motherboard? because there are brands listed in your manual which are compatible. if you have an existing ddr installed temporarily uninstall this and try this ddr2 512mb alone and let it run, if a beep beep sound occurs that means this is not compatible with your computer. remove this and bring this together with your ddr that work to your supplier, ideally the cast latency timer of these should be the same including the brand. hoping that this will help you
