Okay, so RAM. I have two sticks of Corsair Dominator 1066 MHz RAM (2GB in total).

Below is an image of CPU-Z, and it says my FSB to RAM ratio is 5:8.


My task, to buy 4GB of RAM (doubling my current amount) and getting a 1:1 ratio.

So, how could this be acomplished? Buy 667 MHz RAM becuase i think that is how i could acheive my goal. My FSB speed is below:


Below is a link to RAM that I think I will buy, and what I think will make me acheive my 1:1 ratio.

If your OS and CPU are not 64 bit you won't be able to use all the 4GB of RAM.

64 bit XP isn't that good, not many drivers were made for it, Vista or 7 would be a better choice.

Thanks for all your replies, and I do know about 4GB RAM and XP. I will be upgrading to Win 7 32bit soon, so I will be able to use it all.

But can someone please give a YES or a NO answer to wether or not this will give me a 1:1 ratio.

Win 7 32 bit won't allow you to use all 4GB of RAM, you would need 64 bit. The 1:1 ratio is the frequency of the CPU and RAM, not the size of the memory.

I know that the size of RAM won't change to a 1:1 ratio, the fact is I am changing to 4gb becuase of performance. And I meant 64 bit 7 sorry. Never mind about this, I know this RAM will allow me to acheive a 1:1 ratio. But becuase I found a cheaper set of ram, I am buying two 800 MHz 4GB kit.
