I bought a Acer Aspire 5051 with MK-36 and 512 MB DDR2-533 MHz on one SO-DIMM.
As I want to upgrade memory to 1 GB, I was reading through some webpages, and found out that DDR2-533 is running only with 500 MHz if Turion-Clock is 2 Ghz (see http://hardware.thgweb.de/2006...md-t...book/page2.html
Now I'm wondering if it is better to upgrade to 2 modules 512 MB 533 Mhz or buy one 667 MHz module with 1 GB instead. Or better 2 modules 512 MB 533 Mhz?
I think the two modules have to be the same size and speed rating, right?
Can the MK-36 even handle 667 MHz DDR2? I have not found ANY information about that CPU on the AMD website
How much benefit brings dual channel with Turion and Integrated Graphics (ATI Radeon X1100)?
Will there be a significant difference in battery life (1 vs. 2 Modules, 533 vs. 667 Mhz)?
Thanks for comments!
