You can if the mobo only supports DDR2



For gaming, they will all do the job. But in order of preference:

1) Corsair CMD4GX2M2A1066C5 Dominator = 5-5-5-15

2) TWIN2X4096-8500C5 = 5-5-5-15

3) TWIN2X4096-8500C5/C5C - XMS2 = Not really 5-6-6-15

4) Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX - XMS2 = 4-4-4-12 limited to 800mhz

4) Corsair TWIN2X4096-8500C7 G = No. 7-7-7-20

EVER is a long time - and all brands have better performing modules than others

Corsair and Gskill are both pretty good brands overall. Most important thing is to make sure your motherboard supports the one you pick.

And at the end of the day unless all you do is run benchmarks all day long, you would be hard pressed to notice much of a difference between value ram and the most expensive (a couple of FPS here and there at best).

One thing, make sure to check the qualified memory (QVL) list for your motherboard. Not too good to end up with something that isn't compatible. Most of the time it isn't a problem, but sometimes one model from the same manufacturer won't work where another from the same will.

Yeah, personally I concentrate on Video cards more than anything for my gaming rigs. If I am trying to save money on anything I will shave money off other pieces in order to get the best video card I can afford.

I agree. your specs say you have a Gigabyte board. Gigabyte is good for listing all thier specs online. If you dont know the model, get CPU-Z and look in the mainboard tab: CPUID

If you know what model it is, (or after you find what it is) google it. There should be a gigabyte webpage for that specific board and Rev#.

Look in the specs to see what it uses DDR2 or 3 and the max amount supported and the max speed supported. then look in the memory supported section to see if the one you want is in the supported list.

If its not, you might still be ok since they cant list all, but the most popular ones should be listed.
