I have a GX260, wanted to know if the motherboard (Dell 02X378) - Chipset Intel i845G supports dual DDR, i.e, I am adding extra RAM and wanted to know if I must do so in pairs to take advantage of Dual DDR? if not then i will simpy add wahtever i want.
2 sockets for RAM
The sockets between PC133 and DDR are totally different.The GX260 uses DDR and it does not interleave memory so you can add 1 stick at a time and it wont complain at you.Maximum Memory 2GB Memory Slots 2 (2 banks of 1) You can use DDR400 ram but it will only run at DDR266 max with the appropriate cpu.Ive seen systems using PC2100 ram in them.

I think though i may have mixed you up!
I know my computer uses PC2100 RAM, it currently only has 256Mb, I wish to add some more, however (this is the bit I think i didnt explain too well), I want to know if I can mix the size of the RAM I wish to add with what I have. I have read that if the system is "dual channel" and I want to use this then I must add the same size of RAM that is already in place.
So is my system "dual channel"???
