on my old motherboard i have 768MBytes of RAM which is of the pc2100 type, i
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
Yes but it depends on the motherboard BIOS and the CPU you're planning
Some motherboards though will only allow the RAM to run at the same FSB
as the CPU meaning that if you get a XP3200 that has a 200MHz FSB,
you're going to need PC3200 RAM.
