I'm about to upgrade my motherboard from a P75 to a PPro200,
and would like to upgrade the memory at the same time.
My P75 motherboard has 32Mb or memory: 2 x 16Mb 60ns non-EDO SIMMS.
I'd like my new system to have 64Mb in total.
My question is, should I:
(a) buy 64Mb of EDO SIMMS for the PPro motherboard.
(b) buy 32Mb of EDO SIMMS and also use the old SIMMS.
The only disadvantage I see to (a) is cost :-)
The main disadvantage to (b) is a (likely) performance hit.
Plus I paid an aweful lot of money for those 2x16Mb non-EDO SIMMS
in April 1995 :-) :-)
I suppose another concern is whether a PPro motherboard will
support a mix of EDO and non-EDO memory. I've only looked into
the ASUS PPro boards so far, and their tech support claims that
they'll support 2x16Mb non-EDO and 2x16Mb EDO on the same board.
FWIW, I'm running Windows NTWS 4.0 and Linux 2.0.27
Any comments/suggestions/opinions are greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
