I am new here and new to pc building. My friends really help build much of my pc for me. Now I am on my own, I like to upgrade my pc.
So far, I got myself a Machspeed motherboard. ( Here is the link: http://machspeed.com/x_p4x400.htm
) Now that I have a PC2100 266mhz 512mb ram, I like to get a 1GB PC2100 266mhz ram added.
What troubles me is that whenever I go to a computer shop online, I am confused at the choice to buy.
For example, I go to this computer online website here: http://store.yahoo.com/digi4me/ddrsdramdimm.html
It is giving me a cheaper price to choose for a generic brand name which specifically states that "Does Not Support Intel/AMD Chipset, some SiS Chipset Only." Will the generic brand matter??? Then the brand name ones are a bit more pricey. Adding to that, there is the confusion of what is "ECC" and "not ECC"????
Help...I am lost on this...
