Re: DDR PC2-5200 compatibility

What model computer are you running? The size and speed of the ram depend on the model of the computer or more specifically the motherboard installed in the computer.

You can also try this (http://www.4allmemory.com/) neat little tool to help you figure out what chips you should be installing into your computer.

Since you are using DDR RAM, all DDR RAM will compatible with your mobo. No DDR2 RAM will work on your system. For using DDR2 RAM you have to buy the DDR2 supported mobo.

Re: DDR PC2-5200 compatibility

DDR PC2-5300 is much more common and should work OK at 5200 speeds. 5300 is faster. However, if you install your motherboard with 5300 speed RAM , it will still run at 5200's speed.

Download this Belarc Advisor software. it should tell you the board speed, and the ram details.
