    Hello everyone!

    I got this really important question. I am going to get the Asus P4T533-C MOBO. When i looked to for the corresponding memory, my jaw dropped to the floor! It requires 2x232-pin 32-bit RIMM Sockets supporting RIMM 4200. It costs 210 dollars for two 256ers for RAM. Why is it so high. Maybe I should not get this MOBO. i know that some of you have this board so tell me what you think about it. Is it worth the investment?



    CHAOS needs advice(period):devil:

    You should use 184-pin 16 bit RDRAM memory modules on that mobo. 2x256 Mb brand rdram is about 200-250 us$ which isn't higher than any good brand ddr memory nowadays, for example pc3200 or 3500 crucial.

    This solution gives you extreme memory bandwindth, my 2.26 ghz P4 with rdram spanks the sass outta my amd xp2400+ when I encode audio & video, this had most certainly not been the case if it wasn't for the rdram. It also improves my fps within heavy 3d games pretty mutch..

    Sure it cost mutch money but as mentioned not more than any good high speed ddr and it often outperforms it to.

    You could always check out the granite bay motherboards, it has E7205 chipset and supports two cheaper pc2100 ddr modules to be run in dual channel and is suposed to give ya equal performance as rambus even though some test have shown otherwise..

    Dual channel setup, I'd go with an SiS 655 based motherboard not a GB... Just my own personal opinion :)
