Default High density or low density ram?

So I have an Abit AN8 motherboard with an Athlon 64 3500+ "hammerclaw". Will this system run with high density pc3200? Or should I get low density?

Is it true that low density can give you better performance? If yes than how significant is it?

Thx for your help

do you mean density or frequency ?? , if frequency its definitaly generally betetr to use high frequency.

Your top supported is normall DDR/SDRAM 266/333/400 frequency.

I woudl preferably use 400/333. Or to be safe just buy the best make at the highest price memory supported, then you know it will be peek supported performance.


Many thanks
