    Which would be better.....512 meg 2x256 of pc2100 or 256 meg 1x256 of 2700? This is going on an Nforce2 mobo...just thought I would ask!

    Ram it to me!
    Sounds like a dirty proposal ;)


    what cpu are you using????
    barton core is 333FSB
    the tbreds are 266FSB.
    But if you are OCing than i would go with the faster, PC2700, as its a 333FSB, if your CPU can handle 200FSB go with PC3200.
    2100 is 266 which will slow you down.

    Hey man go for the 2x256 mb option, else you won't use the Nforce2 mobos dual channel memory.. Which will seriously reduce your performance..:2cents:

    this is going in one of those Shuttle XPC systems so there is no place in the bios to OC it, it will be just the ram to speed things up, there is room in the bios to play with the ram timings but I dont know if the pc2100 can handle aggresive timings or not i guess i will have to ram it in and play around with it:smokin:

    are you guys serious, 2 sticks of PC2100 beat 1 stick of 2700 with an Nforce chipset??

    Min. w/ an nForce2 mobo should be 2x PC2700 but I can vouch that 2x XMS3500 will work to the extreme with that chipset.

    I dont have two 256 pc2700's here only one 256 and one 512..can you mix match different sizes?

    I really like this little comp so far! Ittakes up a lot less space on my desk than a normal case...i mean I can palm the damn thing! If it wasnt such a pain in the a$$ to change CPU's in it i would toss my 2700 in it with the XMS. The interior of the case is just so small there isnt really any playing room. so far it is doing S@H in about 3hrs or so. I will have to see after it gets some more WU done to see what the Ram difference is...I might just toss in the XMS for the heck of it! It has a Xp2200+ in it right now, for now....
