Help upgrading EeePC 710's memory

    Morning crew - I'm looking to upgrade my Asus netbook's ram, specfically from 512mb to 2GB as prices have come down like there's no tomorrow.

    It's been a long time since I did a ram upgrade so I'm rather out of the picture hardware wise. I know that DDR2 ram is backwards compatible, so PC6400 ram should be compatible with systems that require PC5300. What I'm not sure about is whether the ram I want will exceed what the mobo requires in other areas.

    This is the ram I've seen, good price and specs:…tml

    ^DDR2 @ 6400

    Then there is this at the same price:…45B

    ^DDR2 @ 5400

    The Eee takes the 5400 ram, but as the other is faster and the exact same price is there any reason to buy the 5400 module?

    Thanks for the help!


    Honest answer - I don't know. Sorry
