Q about RD ram.
ok i need to know something about rd ram. i heard that it can only be used in pairs or it can't work. i already have 256 mb of it but now i need more. could i just add 1 more stick of lets say 128 mb? or do i have to add a pair.
asus p4t-e mobo
256 mb rdram
radeon 7000 64mb
oh btw, i have something called a C-RIMM in my other 2 slots and i checked in the motherboard manual and it says that they are there to "complete the sockets that are not populated by rdram". does this mean that i should be able to add just one stick of RDram instead of a pair?
thanx for any help.

As far as I know, it works in pairs, so you will have a total of 4 slots in your PC - 2 will have C-RIMMS in them, and 2 will have 128mb RD-RAM, making your 256. Therefore, to add 128mb would require 2 64mb sticks to replace the C-Rimms.

No problem - I beleive I speak the truth, but normally you get flamed sooner than a good response, so I may indeed be helpful - but if you already have 256, upgrading an extra 128 is not really all that worth while - you would be better off getting another 256 (money permitting)

yeah rd ram is pretty expensive. i decided to buy it when it first came out and it turned out to be a wrong decision. oh well.
