You'll want to make sure that if you do get some memory it's a good speed that is supported by your motherboard.

It will help a lot with the genreal running of your machine and it'll mean that you get a slick entry into css and it's smoooooth baby :).

I've just split this from the 'gfx card' thread as we started talking about memory - keep talking memory there though :D.

If you can leave off buying it for at least 3 months, the prices of memory will drop a lot more. Overproduction cuts cost.

yes, it uses normal ram (unbuffered, unregistered, non-ecc)


What is the difference between theses?

Most ram nowadays is unbuffered and unregistered. Some motherboards (typically server or professional workstation) require you to buy EEC (Error Control Code) Memory. ECC is more expensive, slower and has a larger overhead but due to automatic error correction is more stable and therefore less prone to crash your computer.
