Dear Experts,

I am having a PC of
Intel Celeron-D 2.53GHz
on
Intel D845GVSR Board
and 80 GB HDD.

Atpresent I am having
256 MB RAM (2X128 MB DDR 300 MHZ).

I would like to upgrade
the RAM to 1 GB.

Can I do that?
If yes, please give me
detailed specification
of RAM which I should use.


    In the OEM Pack of Motherboard,
    it has been given that

      • It supports 400 MHZ System Bus
                  and It supports DDR333/266/200 SDRAM
                  Memory.

      • Supports up to 2 GB of system memory with  
                   DIMMs utilizing 512 Mbit technology DRAM
                   devices

Please help.

Two 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM sockets  
 Support for single-sided or double-sided DIMMs (DDR 333/266/200)  
 Support for up to 2 GB system memory

You need to remove the present 256, and replace the 2 available slots with 1gig modules (2)

Here is the support page for your motherboard

yes you can.

the thing you need to watch out for is the latencey of the ram.

they both need to match the cas latency and the mhz need to be the same although most ram will be backwards compatible but some are'nt.

so to be safe match it up.

hi rindi, I think the best thing to do is to split the points everyone had something good to ad to the question.

also when I mentioned matching up the mhz this site will explain everything.

the purpose of matching up the ram is that if the ram is backward compatible the motherboard will always regress to the slower ram.

the motherboard mentioned will easily handle ddr4000.
