macpro 1.1 (2.1) 2x8 or 8x2GB PC2-5300x 667mhz Ram combinations
I want to buy 16GB RAMfor my 2006, 1.1 (2.1) MP DC device, with 8GB ram (in all risers)
so i can install ElCapitan.
I found some ads, selling either 2 DIMMSx8GB or 8 DIMMSx 2GB, PC2-5300x 667mhz RAM.
Which one is best and possibly work faster, or it does not matter at all...
What the term i.e. 2Rx4 means ?
What is difference from 5300G, 5300F ram. Can xxxxG and xxxxF RAM work ok on my mac?
Further machine info is:
