am looking at a motherboard which says
DDR400 (PC3200), the latest and fastest DDR memory standard, supports
bandwidth up to 3.2GB/s to provide enhanced system performance.
but on the other part it says this:
3 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 3GB PC3200/PC2700/PC2100 Non-ECC DDR
does it mean it will support my memory which i no is ok
just wanna check before i buy it
Re: new motherboard and old memory
The motherboard supports both the slower bus speeds of older
CPUs and the faster bus speeds of more modern ones- which
CPU you install dictates the running speed (unless you're
choosing to over or under-clock the system).
You didnt provide details about the CPU you'd use or the
motherboard make and model so the generic answer would be
that it'll support the memory if running it at only PC2100
speed, which it may or may not be able to do.
