    It's an AMD Duron 1.3 on a ASUS A7V400-MX. I plan on putting 1 GIG of memory, but I was just wondering what speed of DDRAM to put in.

    Thanks

    What is the difference between good ram and crappy quality ram. It's a blur when you look on pricewatch.

    Crappy RAM that you find on pricewatch may not be compatible with all motherboard types whereas good RAM is usually compatible across the board. The biggest difference in RAM is usually to overclockers where they'll pay extra for the same speed RAM with a lower latency to give more flex for OC'ing.

    If you're going to buy RAM then stick with the name brands, Kingston, Crucial, PNY, etc. for max compatibility.
