Welcome to TSF:

Hello Bullet: I strongly advise you research and write down some memory model numbers that are compatible with your mobo BEFORE you buy. Alot of people ( i have doen it too!!) buy some memory because the deal was good onluy to find its not compatible with your mobo. I would research on the crucial, corsair and ocz websites (all excellent memory makers) and find model numbers for memory sticks which are listed as compabible for your mobo. Then; using these model numbers go on ebay and bid on that memory!!

otherwise you will find a hellva deal / but it may not work with your board / especailly one gig sticks are even fussier than the 512 if you can believe that !!

also does your board support dual channel config's ( mobo have 3 or four slots for memory) if four than probally yes / a board will run alot faster with two matching sticks of 512 in dual channel mode than it will run in single channel mode with one gig !!!!

regards

joe

its got 2 slots for DDR and 2 for SD and you cant mix em.

recently I bought another 512 MB SDram pc133 which was the same type already in their, and every once in a while it would reboot on me, sometimes doing it alot within 10 minute period.

only info I found was it supports 200/233 DDR or something. someone told me it will support chips only as high as PC2100

web site only says speed PC133/DDR266
I assuming thats the highest speeds it can go in memory, I dunno.
and all the asrock site says is up to 2 GB DDR Dimm or 2 GB SDR

I might of found a compatible chip, but will high density chips work on this board?

I cant find really whats compatible with the mobo though,.
