Question about ASUS P4VP-MX Motherboard
Sorry to disturb you, but anybody i know can answer my question about my motherboard and no notices are in the user guide that came with it.. Here is the problem. My motherboard is a p4v533-mx, and it came with a 512 mb DDR 184 Pin 333Mhz, Non ECC, UnBuffered , Non Parity, low density. Now i bought a 1 gb new card to increase my memory, but in the guide there is not it must be low density, so the one i got is 1 gb DDR 184 Pin 266Mhz, Non ECC, UnBuffered, Non Parity, high density. The question is: can they work together, i mean does my motherboard support them both at the same time? I hope you can answer soon, because if they don't work, i would try to give it back. I apologize for my bad english, i'm from Italy. Cristina
They have to be the same in pairs low ok jim

In my experience you can insert any memory module you like if it is the correct type but a high density or whatever will default to the lowest common denominator memory module as it is the arbiter of operating speed. I RECOMMEND YOU USE THE SAME MODULES AT ALL TIMES.

This is not the answer to my question.
The question is: can they work together, i mean does my motherboard support them both at the same time?
The link you mention, says they both fit (read better), but i don't know if they can work together.

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.
