    I have a MSI KT3 Ultra2

    Here is the link:

    http://www.msi.com.tw/program/produc...MODEL=MS-6380E


    "Main Memory
    * Supports six memory banks using three 184-pin DDR DIMMs
    * Supports a maximum memory size up to 3GB
    * Supports 2.5V DDR200/266/333 DDR SDRAM DIMM
    * NO support ECC Function"



    So, can I buy 2 sticks of 1024G DDR 333 ??????
    :shrug:

    I hope you mean 1024 MB, not GB ;) ...yes you can use 1 gig sticks, but the last time I checked, gig sticks were bloody expensive. Unless you are planning on doing memory demanding tasks on a regualar basis, 2x 512 MB sticks should suite you very well.

    :cheers:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    are priced relative to their counterparts, about a buck 30 for the gig sticks and half that for 512's. regardless, the latency of the memory should be of consideration, as well as any attempts to overclock for your final selection

    Do you plan on overclocking? If not, then whatever you get will be fine.

    If so, then I would suggest an Nforce2 chipset board such as the Abit NF7, with PC3200 capable memory at minimum.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    Yep. my bad.... 1024MB:P

    I just want to buy a stick, and in the future, a second one.

    OK, they are really expensive, but If I buy a 512 stick, then, iŽll be stuck with if I want to upgrade...

    Soulburner: I donŽt plan on OC...
    Is my mobo a bad choice???

    From the link, I saw that can be upgraded to 3000+ ( in a couple of months IŽll upgrade it)
    Is that right? Or just utopic???
    :wow:

    Its not a bad board but there a couple of things. Your better off going with a Nforce 2 chipset and 400 fsb support.

    I thought that there was not difference in performance between 2700 and 3200. Just read in almost every review... please correct me if IŽm wrong:hammer:

    Option 1
    If it really MAKES a difference, maybe, IŽll just buy a new mobo with 400 fsb and 3200 support.
    (DonŽt really want to do it...)

    Option 2
    If it DOESNT make a difference, then IŽll just stick with my mobo, buy a 1024 ddr 2700, and in time, iŽl buy the other one, with a new mobo nforce 2 to really use the dual channel.

    Please shoot your thoughts

    And if I DO, then I should buy 3200...
