    Default RAM buying help!

    Hi guys, I need some help regarding buying RAM for my very old PC. If you look at my config, you will find out that my rig is very much outdated. I have a 2GB RAM which does not cut it anymore. I have a mobile which has higher RAM then my PC, so upgrading it has become a necessity for me. I have recently bought a SSD as well to counter the frequent lags, which has actually helped me a lot.

    Now what I need help, is for choosing a right pair of RAM for my PC. I am planning to upgrade both my CPU and Motherboard in near future as well. So, please recommend me the RAM which will be compatible with the newer processor/motherboard as well. Not a heavy gamer also. I am really a novice at this and any help regarding my problem will be greatly appreciated. My budget is around 6k(the cheaper the better though) for the RAM..so please give me some suggestions

    Extremely sorry bro. You need to consult with the curator of the National Museum regarding this matter.

    First upgrade your CPU and Motherboard because DDR2 RAMs will not be compatible with the new gen Motherboards as most of the new Mobos use DDR3 and DDR4 RAMs. If you buy a DDR2 at this point then you basically 'taka pani-te falaitesen'.

    @CoVER- VANGUARD: I have to agree with your statement.

    Sorry bro, no upgrade possible unless you find someone who has more than 2gb of ddr2 ram in two sticks left in their drawer.

    BUT, it's not the end of the road, here is a different idea for you,

    with your 6k budget, you can actually have a better mobo than your current one, which has 4XRAM slots, supports both ddr2/ddr3 RAM (can not use simultaneously though), also supports 2nd gen cpu (your LGA775 package is also supported), i find this more suitable for you as you may have someone having more than 2gb ddr3 RAM in two sticks left idle than ddr2. Best part is, you can upgrade your RAM into ddr3 later on without changing your CPU.

    Gigabyte GA-G41M Combo (rev. 1.3) price: BDT 6100 (ryan's computer got them)

    i hope it helps.

    Good thing I posted here then. Will take measures to buy the mobo first and then think about changing my existing RAM.

    Now what I need help, is for choosing a right pair of RAM for my PC. I am planning to upgrade both my CPU and Motherboard in near future as well. So, please recommend me the RAM which will be compatible with the newer processor/motherboard as well. Not a heavy gamer also. I am really a novice at this and any help regarding my problem will be greatly appreciated. My budget is around 6k(the cheaper the better though) for the RAM..so please give me some suggestions
    Well i would like to suggest not to buy a ram, save up and buy your desired new config. Because ddr4 ram are on the way and u will be able to squeeze out performance from most of the money you have got.
    Sorry i didn't read the whole post. Any DDR4 or ddr3 will cut out. Rams are not that important for gaming but if u are a professional gfx designer or do a lot of rendering job, then it will come to play. But if u can get good deals on corsair vengeance or gskill snipers for ddr4 or ddr3, then go buy it.

    spending anything for that LGA 775 and DDR2 is an uber BS idea when you can easily switch to haswell refresh by adding extra 2k money.

    I haven't decided on which motherboard to buy, but I have decided to not buy RAM as of this moment. Now I don't know if there are any motherboards which are compatible with both my existing Core 2 Duo and Core i3/i5(probable future upgrade). But if there isn't, then I might just wait a while and upgrade both my cpu and mobo altogether. Anyway, I would like to thank everyone for their input as computer hardware is not one of my specialty.

    They use different socket. i.e. impossible.
    You'll have to change cpu+mobo+ram together.

    and yes of course if you want better system all together and if you are not that desperate, then please wait up a bit longer and save more money, buy the whole new stuffs on your own after a while. and trust me, there is a hell lot of fun in it!

    @Hex
    I was once in your shoes, a few years back with DDR1 RAM in a Pentium 4 system. What I did was that I bought 2x1GB sticks at TK500 each from elephant road. They were probably 3rd or 4th hand. And the two sticks were of different brands but still it was worth it cuz it enabled me to stretch the usable life of my system by two more years. During which I saved up enough money to buy a entire new system

    So for now you can buy 2x2gb to make it usuable again. I think you should get them at 1000 bucks for a stick at max. If you can haggle you might lower it to 500 bucks. That should give u time to save up some money to buy an entire new system
