Post Ram

Considering buying 2 Gigs of Ram for my system.
type of ram is DDR SDRAM which I found it. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...0139&CatId=147

One thing i'm worried about though is.. Pins? that has 184. How can you find out what your system takes?

DDR RAM has 184 Pins.

DDR2 RAM has 240 Pins.

So if your system uses DDR RAM then you need to use RAM with 184 pins.

Prodigy146, if he needs DDR ram then none of those will work. If You look at what he is getting then you will see that it is DDR and 184 pin. The two that you have listed is DDR2 and 240 pin.

Cheers!
