8GB DDR2 RAM for my DG41RQ Mother board.

I am planning to upgrade my computer that has "DG41RQ" Mother board memory from 4GB DDR2 RAM to 8GB DDR2, as far as I searched I couldn't able to find the 8GB DDR2 RAM..

I found this https://www.amazon.in/Kingston-KTH-XW667-8G-667MHz-Memory/dp/B000JQV8F6 but it has vague reviews that it supports only DELL servers. ( Saw this review too, https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/RDR8YI6VJVTW0/ ) So I am little bit confused.

Can you guys confirms it supports my mother board, or suggest some 8GB DDR2 RAM or Should I need to buy another Mother Board with DDR3/4 :D

Thanks,

  1. Looks like it has 2 slots and it supports up to 8 GB max. So you can't install 1 8GB stick. Only 2x4 GB ram sticks

  2. That is, indeed, server/workstation memory and will NOT work with your motherboard.

    You need to install 2x4GB of memory to get the maximum 8GB of memory.

  7. 2 of these should work: https://www.amazon.in/4GB-DDR2-667MHz-Dolgix-Desktop/dp/B018TVP0JW/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1515010261&sr=8-4&keywords=ddr2+4gb+ram+for+desktop

    I am not familiar with the brand, but this does appear to be compatible, generic memory.

  8. 8gb of compatible ram for that old system isn't going to be cheap, since it's been out of production for a few years it's also going to be hard to find.

    IMHO it's not worth the price of the upgrade by a long shot.

  9. If you want 2 of them you should get 2 identical ram sticks

    Can you buy the ram from any other site, besides Amazon?

    Sorry if I am wrong, from the image I think that is 2GB ram, so 2*2GB ram that is why the title is 4GB.

  11. It seems to show as a single stick of 4GB DDR2 memory. The part number is also listed here and seems to show the same:

    https://www.priceflip.com/dolgix-dlr2gd266-4gb-ddr2-desktop-ram-ZTozMTYzNjQ

    and here:

    http://www.priceiq.in/4gb-ddr2-667mhz-dolgix-desktop-ram-dlr2gd266/v/8906047431567-dolgix

    On the last link, you can read the label and it says 4GB.

    I see what you mean, I suppose you could contact the seller to verify.

    You're very right. It is overpriced, and in that price we can upgrade the mother board :D Thanks for your insights Sir!

    Thank you so much Sir, For ~8000rs for 2*4GB RAMs, It is a bit of costly. and, I am realizing that upgrade the RAM is a bad Idea.. Thanks for your suggestions though.

    Thanks,

  14. Understood, it seems you now have the necessary incentive to modernize your hardware. Always good to have a good excuse to justify the expense. Good luck.
