Deciding on Memory for new PC...Need help.

Hey cats and kittens,

I'm building a new PC and I need some logistical help. My new mobo will only have 2 DIMM slots. It supports ddr200 / ddr 266 and ddr 333. Here is the delema. This is the board I'm buying MSI - MS-6580 - 845GE MAX-L Socket 478 ATX Motherboard with Integrated Audio/Video and LAN Ports It's way sweet. Now if I go PC2100 I can go up to 2GB of RAM, but if I go PC2700 I can utilize FSB533 @ 1GB of RAM. Which would U choose?

do you see yourself ever using that ram?

Personally I'd go for 2Gigs but I'm a crazy multitasker and push my machine to it's limits.

So AZ, what do you do with your computer?

I play High Graphic MMORPGs and I'm getting into making VCDs and DVDs hopefully soon.

But I play more games than cut video.

If you cut video WHILE playing games (yes, I'm sick) then 2 gigs. But since your gaming, you will most likely upgrade your hardware before you need that extra gig at one time.

And the extra little bit of speed wouldn't hurt.

Definitely get the PC2700. It's much faster than PC2100, and on some applications, over 1.5 GB of RAM will slow it down. 1 GB of PC2700 is perfect!

Use the 2700, you won't need 2GB RAM
