which memory should I buy?
Posted on 1998-11-19
I have Asus P2B motherboard and its memory system specification:
-3 x 168-pin DIMM Sockets to Support 8MB to 768 MB RAM
-Utilizes 4/8/16/32/64/128/256MB 168-Pin DIMM 3.3V SDRAM
-Features ECC Support
-PC100 (100MHz)Compliant SDRAM Interface
I am confused what kind of memory should I buy. Can SIMM, DRAM, EDO work on this board? Do I have to buy a pair of DIMM (because in my old computer, a single module won't work)?
Someone offer me a 168pin 64MB SDRAM w/ EEPROM. What is EEPROM and will this thing work on Asus P2B board?
What speed should I choose? 6ns, 7ns, 8ns, 10ns? Asus P2B specification doesn't tell this. Is faster == better?
What is ECC support?
If I want to buy a memory, what should I ask (speed, pin #, type, what else?)
What does PC100(100 MHz) means? Will 168pin 64MB SDRAM 66Mhz work?
When I want to buy a memory, it's said "unbufferd". What's this?
