128bit Dual DDR mode (msi 6373)

Advertisement
Hello!
I currently have only one 256mb pc2100 ram in my nforce.
I am thinking of buying another 256mb so i can use dual ddr mode on my nforce.
How much will the performance increase be using 2 256mb dimms?
I cant get another identical ram dimm to the one i currently use, will it be worth it buying 2 identcal ram dimms?
Thanks to all who reply, Hope xmas went well.
Happy new year!

Try buying one more DIMM as close to the specs of the one you have as you can get. If that doesnt work, get another one of the new ones. Since you are using onboard video dual ddr mode will definitely help. You'll get enough bandwidth that your video circuit and your CPU will be able to comfortably co-exist at top speed.
