i need ddr2 , non EEC, and i thinking pc2 8500 cos and prob best jus go for the straight 2gb (x2). just quick question, the different makes of ram will all stil ft into my computer? im guessing that the make is different but the spec is still the same
If im correct, all modern DDR2 RAM should have the 240pin design, so unless your computer is really old it should fit, the reason why there are so many varieties is because they are made to measure a certain MHz, the larger the MHz the larger the price and the better ability to overclock.
It doesnt really matter about if its ECC or non-ECC because the prices are hardly different so I suggest the Corsair Value Select 2048Mb (2x1GB):
At £25 its a bargain!
