I have an old.. at least 5 year old computer.
It's an Intel P4 2.4 GHZ. My motherboard is manufactured by Dell. It's an Intel i850E, which is some kind of generic crap. It only has 2 channels. [Dual] This motherboard is so old that it only supports RDRAM, I believe. I don't know the difference between RDRAM and the other types, but my 512 MB of RAM is PC800 RDRAM, which I think is pretty terrible.
Do I need to get a new motherboard so I can get a different type of RAM? RDRAM seems outdated to me.. and it's still really expensive. Also, having more channels available would be great. I could put more RAM into my computer this way.
I've looked at some things on newegg, but with my lack of knowledge I'm afraid I may buy something that won't be compatible with my system.
These are the three things I've looked at:
Would these choices work out together and be compatible with my current system? I'm afraid I'll buy everything and I'll find out that the motherboard won't go into my computer.
If you read this and can help me out.. then I really, really appreciate it. I know nothing about RAM and the such. If you have any suggestions, by all means, please share them.
