No. PC133 SDRAM and DDR1 ram are different in many ways.

The DDR DIMM is an older type of RAM. DDR DIMM is not compatible with other kinds of RAM which is why a person that has an older PC has to choose a DDR DIMM memory as a replacement for one that broke.


PC-100 or PC-133 SDRAM will not fit into a DDR SDRAM slot. If you look at the bottom edge you will see that the number of notches and the spacing of them are completely different. Even if they did use the same sockets, they are not at all compatible with each other, to the point that if you have a motherboard with both sockets you would only be able to use one type of RAM at a time.


It is possible to use pc3200 ddr ram in a PC designed for pc2700 ddr ram, but the pc3200 ram will only run at pc2700. If you want to fully exploit the pc3200 ram then you will have to buy a motherboard that will be able to support a speed equal to pc3200 or greater.


Yes! You can use higher-specced components in a computer, as long as they have a compatible interface with your motherboard.


Usually the RAM stick has a label on it saying what kind of RAM it is and how big it is, and it should say if it is DDR or DDR2. If not, don't know what to tell you.


-Maximum Amount Supported by the Computer. (some computers have 256MB per slot MAX, while others have 2GB Maximum per slot. -Type of Ram required. DDR, DDR-2, DDR-3 -Speed of Ram. PC-100, PC-266, PC-667 etc.


Not both at the same time. Most motherboards will be able to support both types of RAM but DDR RAM is much better, due to the double data capability it has. Since RAM prices are quite cheap it would be better if you throw out your SD RAM and buy DDR. No you cannot use both ddr ram and sd ram on the same pc. You have to use either or depending on the motherboard. The slots are different. You can determine what type of memory you have by entering setup in the bios when you turn on your pc. DDR Ram has a slot in the very center of the chip that forms to the slot you plug it into. SD ram has a slot on the chip off set the middle. Hope this answers your question.

Unfortunately you can not. DDR and DDR2 have a different pin arrangement and they will never work in each others slots.


PC-2700 is DDR RAM at 333 MHz. PC2-3200 is DDR2 RAM running at 400 MHz. They are not interchangeable.


Depending on your motherboard it is most likely because most motherboards can only use one type of ram at a time. So you can only use ddr with more ddr to see more than one stick of ram.


Surf to Crucial .com and they will scan your computer for free.


No, you cannot. PC2 is ddr2 type of memory when PC is ddr. Those types are not compatible.


The Kingston Technology DDR is a good brand for any computer PC Kingston Value is the best choice.


Double sided PC memory is a RAM module that posses two edges (a rising and a falling edge) on which data is received/sent. An example is DDR and DDR2 RAM.


Yes, the ram built into the card which is ddr2 means nothing to your PC using ddr1 ram they are completely separate. Just like how ddr3 computers can have gddr5 graphics ^^


You wouldn't notice the difference if you are just doing casual computer use, for example: Internet Browsing, listening to music, or word processing. However, if you are playing graphically intensive games, then you would notice a difference. The higher the PC number (PC2100, PC2700, or PC3200) then the better it is. Just be sure to buy the memory that is compatible with your motherboard... that is if you are planning on buying memory.


PC 3200 refers to the speed of your RAM. PC 3200 and DDR 400 (the newer measurement) mean the same thing. These are the two ways that speed is expressed in terms of PC memory. It's the same with RAM capacity. It used to be so small we would say, this is a 16mb stick of RAM. Now, we say this is a 1GB stick of RAM, but it's still referred to as 1024MB.


no you can not use 400 MHZ ram because (PC2100 @ 266 MHZ ddr) and (PC2700 @ 333 MHZ ddr) are the only chips that are inter changable. PC3200 is 400 MHZ but it has 2 slots not just the one. It does not fit into the same type slot as either PC2700 or PC2100. I was looking at the possibility of a PC2700 ram rated at 400 MHZ but I do not think there is such a thing.


512 SDR. DDR2 is better, but more the memory better it is for your PC, irrespective of the memory technology. You have a point there but considering the current trends, i will prefer the DDR because sdram is being replaced with ddr. Especially if you planning to buy a new mother board, most MoBo's nowadays are of ddr. But speed and capability is better than having plenty of ram. It is with the speed of access not only the space. Besides, it's better to consider efficiency, right?


This is impossible to do without physically breaking the DDR socket. If you did manage to do this you're going to need to buy a new motherboard and ram. You probably shouldn't be building your own computer.


Actually the first person who said that it wouldn't fit was correct. It may have the same amount of pins but the size of the card is slightly different. I tried it! No, pc5300 has more pins and won't fit. The above answer is incorrect. Both are 200 pin pieces. I dont know if the 5300 memory will work but the pin count is the same. Why would you want to ??? The faster Memory module PC5300 will clock down to the lower speed of the bus for the PC2700 . You are spending money for nothing. PLUS if you have issues and need tech support - they won't talk to you until you reinstall the PC2700 as they won't support memory not designed for the unit. All in all - a BAD idea. Both notebook DDR and DDR2 come as 200 pin chips. (unlike desktop ram where DDR has 180 and DDR2 has 240 pins). DDR2 was not designed to be backwards compatible with DDR. I want to know if the mobo will recongnize the difference, or if the slot in the ram is a different place. The reason you would want to buy DDR2 over DDR is A: faster. B: a 1 stick gig DDR PC 2700 ram costs about twice as much a 1 gig stick of DDR PC 5300 would.


This can be purchased from local PC stores such as PC World (if in the UK) and also smaller stores on the High Street. If you are looking to buy online then Amazon and eBay are stockists.


Generally Mac and PC types of RAM are incompatible, so your best bet would be in shopping for RAM advertised as compatible with your Apple computer.


The same type of RAM with higher speed capabilities can be used on motherboard which supports that particular memory type, but it will work to the rated speed supported by the motherboard or at the speed of the slowest memory on the memory bus. - Neeraj Sharma PC5300 is more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM. As Neeraj stated, if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module. "PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible. PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins. PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins. DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length, but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position. -Jamal


Yes, as long as they are compatible with the existing hardware in the PC itself.
