parity vs. non-parity memory ???

Post by Michael Wrig » Sat, 26 Oct 1996 04:00:00

I want to add another 16MB of RAM to my PC for running X apps.
I currently have 16MB of parity RAM on a SIMM-SAVER.

Should I buy a 16MB parity or non-parity SIMM?  Any suggestions
on who has the best mail-order prices?

Thanks, Michael

1. Parity vs Non-Parity RAM


I acquired the FreeBSD book from Walnut Creek with 2.1.5 on a CD set. I'm about to build a box to install it in,  
and while reading the book, ran across a discussion on the various mother boards to consider. The issue that I'm  
currently concerned about has to do with the parity issue. The new mother boards seem to prefer non-parity ram  
(which makes absoultely _no_ sense to me, $ aside), but also employ alot of "new" variations of RAM, such as EDO,  
etc. Once upon a time I could keep with these variations, but not anymore. Could someone please bring me up to  
speed on the stability of FreeBSD in a non-parity system, and how these other RAM solutions fit into the picture?

I hope this is not too far off topic for this group....
