I am currently operating my Pentium Dual Core 2.66 GHz PC with a 256MB DDR2 RAM (400MHz)...I wanted to replace it with a 1GB DDR2 RAM..but it has 667MHz..can it be replaced?? or do I need a RAM with 400MHz to replace my existing RAM??
I am really clueless about the "MHz" thing..please forgive my ignorance..I just copied my RAM specifications from my PC manual..
Here are some additional details. I scanned my PC with Crucial System Scanner and got the following details:
So, shall I go ahead and purchase a DDR PC3200 RAM?? Wont it conflict with my present DDR2 RAM??# Maximum Memory Capacity: 4096MB
