Best kind of memory i can purchase for my m916 board
Im having a lot of trouble finding specific stats on this motherboard that will tell me compatible memory for it. Im currently running a 1gig kit ( 2 5xx). I'm ready to purchase some more memory and im hoping an extra gig will do the work. I see on website a whole lot of ddr2-800 pc2-6400 2gb kit. I really just want to know what numbers to look for before i start shopping. Thanks!

Re: Best kind of memory i can purchase for my m916 board
You will have to look for PC2100 (DDR266), PC2700 (DDR333), PC3200 (DDR400) memory, because DDR2 (and other types) are not supported. Only these 3 are supported. This website lists memory for you motherboard, but I don't think it is the cheapest. Just have a look around. Every memory that's of the above types will work with your motherboard

My friend, this is a lot like saying my friend gave me a spoon, what kind of a stove should I purchase?
Go purchase a computer if you want one. Beyond your initial question, you have not given any of the specifics concerning the board ... what CPU socket it might have, kind of slots. Do you have a cabinet? A power supply? Might you have ANY componelt that might be used on this un-named board? Is the board even any good?????
What form factor does your new mother board take? Will it fit into an existing cabinet you have? Will the power supply you might have fit your board?
The nicest thing I might say my friend is put your new board on Craig's list or E-bay and get a coule bucks from it.
Unfortunately this is not a store and does not have any hardware for sale. I can, however direct you to a few websites where you can purchase affordable hardware for a computer. www.ncix.com www.newegg.com www.tigerdirect.com
