  • Best memory for MSI 6570 Motherboard


    I am looking to replace my current 512mb PC2700 DDR memory,as it is faulty, for 1GB.
    I have an Athlon 2600+ XP PC,MSI 6570 Motherboard which has an nForce2 with dual channel memory controller.

    I have been recommended by OCZ to purchase their 1 GB PC3200 DDR Platinum as this will make the most of my nforce card. Is this really as high a spec as I can go? I was looking at PC 3500 DDR or PC 3700DDR.Thanks.

    What's your budget? That would be nice to know....
    I don't think you'll really need a GB of memory or PC3500, for that matter. An Athlon XP 2600 probably won't take much advantage of it.
    That's pretty damn good. CAS 2, PC3200, dual channel, 512 MB. I would strongly recommend getting that. Even if you upgraded to an Athlon XP 3200, that PC3200 is probably your best bet.

      PC3500 is the best bet when it comes to OC'ing

        I don't see any mention of OCing, however:
        For a bit more money you could get that PC3500 and OC quite well with it.

          I use this memory in dual channel, and have to say, runs everything perfectly, and fast. :)
