My laptop is PC 2100, currently i have 1 stick of 512 MB RAM operating at 266 Mhz.
I want to upgrade my memory to 1 GB by installing another 512 MB RAM. However, buying PC 2100 RAM at the moment is quite expensive, cause that type of RAM is quite rare. I want to buy a stick of PC 2700 RAM instead. And i also know that the PC 2700 RAM will be downclocked to PC 2100 speed.
So my question is: Even though the two sticks of RAM operates at the same rate ( 266 MHz ) and have the same capacity, will i benefit from dual channel ? Should i purchase a PC 2700 RAM for my upgrade, or should i buy another matching stick of PC 2100 RAM ?
Thank u in advance.
