    Ram Density

    Hello:

    Replaced MB last year with MSI K9n6PGM2-V2 which apparently the chipset recognizes low density Ram chips only.

    When this MB was purchased I was aware that it accept DDR2 ram but didn't know there was a difference in ram density. Now finding upgrading ram is a bit expensive compared to DDR2 High density.

    Any suggestions on details to look at for future purchases?

    Thank you.

    Buy the RAM that your mobo can handle. If it can only support low density, that's what you need to buy.

    In the future you might look toward something that can be upgraded more easily.
    And in order to do the above you will need to spend a bit more time researching any potential components for a build.
