    Hi guys,


    this is what is said about my friend's Mobo on asus site:

    Memory:
    3 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC2700/PC2100 (FSB533) or PC2100/PC1600 (FSB400) non-ECC DDR SDRAM memory


    If I have three 512 sticks, that adds up to alot less than 2gig. I do not understand what this means...Is there bigger than 512?


    Thanks in advance,


    Heeter

    If not now real soon. Crucial just demo'd a 2 gig stick. Wish mine was that big. Note when using more than 2 sticks you may need to have "Buffered" DIMMs. They of course cost extra...
