Hi Batzilla - First off your board has 2 DIMM slots. If you want to upgrade to 2GB ram you have to go 2 X 1GB DIMM. Your board will accept PC 3200/2700/2100 DDR SD RAM Non-ECC. So you can use PC 3200 or PC2700 or PC 2100. But you'll want to match them exactly. I would go with the fastest. So what I would get if price is no problem, (not too exoensive these days) is:

2 X 1GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM DIMM NON-ECC. You can easily check prices with this info. This is the exact info you'll need. If this answers your question, PLEASE rate this as fixed. Please don't rate as helpful. If I thoroughly helped you rate as fixed or please don't rate. Hope this helped. Thanks and have a good day.

Yes there are different types of ram available but since u have a ddr 1 type of ram ddr2 wont match in ur maotherboard.and also do try to get the same type of ram available presently so u dont have problem with the clock speed.

    hi again,ok its about 2gb ram upgrade?well if its just for a normal usage i woudnt suggest u to go for 2gb coz thats too much.but if u are a vivid gamer or multimedia user yess..n again if u are going to over clock you may need a higher clock speed ram i.e pc 3200.if not lower clock speed would suffice.so i guess u got a complete solution to your question.have a nice time.

Pc5300 on pc3200 slot to upgrade msi 845gvm-v


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

Ddr 2 ram connecting to intel d101 motherboard


Well first of all, there is no "adapter".  You have to use the specified RAM that you motherboard supports.  Secondly, even if there was an adapter so to speak, it would not be beneficial.  The only difference performance wise between DDR and DDR2 is speed.  So if your motherboard supports DDR, and you had an "adapter", your motherboard would only read the DDR2 at DDR speed.  In my opinion, DDR2 is not really worth the upgrade to another motherboard just for DDR2.  If you want the biggest bang for your buck, upgrade the CPU, or put more memory in the motherboard you already have.  Hope this helps, and please don't forget to rate.  Thanks.

Can i install 1GB ddr2 on P4VMM2 Motherboard? i want to upgrade my pc; board is: can i P4VMM2 Motherboard; cani i use 1GB ddr2 on this and a 512 MB if vid.card? -jayvee_yao@yahoo.com


Hi,

Unfortunetly you cannot use ddr2 memory on this motherboard. The motherboard supports only PC2100/PC1600 DDR memory if you have version 8.1 of the motherboard. If you have v5.0 of the motherboard than you can only use sdram or ddr 266Mhz RAM. The same goes for the video card. The p4vmm2 motherboard is a rather old motherboard so I don't think it will payoff to upgrade the computer. It will be probably the best if you buy another computer.

best regards

Upgrading Ram


Hi,

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.

I want to upgrade Ram


Hello there.

Upgrading your computer can be a complicated task, as there are lots of different types of memory available. Luckily there are means to make it much easier.

What i would suggest is clicking here and running the memory scan, it will tell you what memory you have exactly already and let you know which new memory is compatible and best suited for this system.

I have purchased and used crucial memory for a lot time, it has free delivery and lifetime warranty. If you do not want to buy it online, print out the page it shows you and take that into your local store, they will be able to choose similar memory.

Hope this helps.

Graphics card upgrade


Not compatable at all.
DDR SDRAM memory uses 184 Pin Dimms
Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. DDR RAM is based on the same architecture as SDRAM, but utilizes the clock signal differently to transfer twice the data in the same amount of time.

DDR2 SDRAM uses 240 Pin Dimms.
DDR2 SDRAM improves on DDR SDRAM by using differential signaling and lower voltages to support significant performance advantages over DDR SDRAM.

If your question has to do with buying a video card that is going to use DDR2 ram, that would be a faster graphics card. You can also get video cards with DDR3 ram which again is even faster.
Oddly enough in respect to system memory DDR2 is supposed to be faster than DDR yet the DDR memory cost more than the DDR2. Go figure.
