Just pulled 4x of these shits out of an old PC. Are they even worth moving to my good one? I realize they are practically worthless but I got them right here.

>ddr
>in a good machine
literally shit, and incompatible with modern crap
>>
>>51399040
Of course. Remember senpai, sometimes you need to really push to get 'em in!
>>
>>51399050
Yep, they are much slower than modern ones, so your CPU will not use them for anything besides swap. So your browser will run a little faster, games will not benefit at all.
Still, pretty easy to install them, if you have slots. Just push really hard, dangerous to leave them half-in, could cause a spark.
>>
Yeah OP keep in mind if the empty slots on your board haven't been used they'll be super tight. You might need to put a lot of weight on the RAM to install it properly.

This m8. Dont be worried at all. Its a fairly simple upgrade, plus you will have more ram and shit. Just push down hard, as hard as you can

I'm sorry but you guys are faggots, OP chill they will make you ruin your computer, your not supposed to do that with RAM, you probably have DDR3 or something on your PC which is not compatible with DDR
>>
>51399863
OP don't listen to this guy, he's full of shit. You can put in any type of ram with any other, it's totally fine.
>>
>>51399863
Bet you think PCI express 1.0 cards won't work in PCI Express 3.0 slots too. It's called backward compatibility. Who's the faggot now?

I have a shitty 2004 compaq with 1.5 gigs of ram 1.39 useable
(big step from my 512 and 256 ram from before)

Kill me senpai, I thought it was a ram issue just being eaten up but its not the only thing. it turns out my cpu is easily being used from simple programs like opera. So i have to use spotify and internet explorer and microsoft word.
Or
opera and word.

Don't even get me started on more known browsers like Firefox and Chrome

>32 gbs of space senpai
Kill me

I really want to fix my newer computer so I dont have to use this backup.

>tfw youtube is lagging behind with IE v 8 and I have to watch it from my phone or tablet

>>51400082
Ty for reminding me about lichman ^^
>>
>>51400082
Use linux
>>
>>51400082
use a lightweight linux distro
>>
>>51399943
ddr isn't backward compatible so whats your point?
>>
>>51400082
I don't think I've ever gone past 500MB RAM usage in OpenBSD. That or any Linux distro with a lightweight WM should do well

Look at this shit
>>
>>51401132
What about it?
>>
>>51401141
You should buy one :D
>>
>>51401132
Lmao I have RDRAM in this PC I'm using right now.

What you gonna do fag?
>>
>>51401153
Every computer I have that takes those modules already has the RAM maxed, why would I buy more?
>>
>>51400082
For Youtube is better not to use a web browser with flash player. I use GTK Youtube bowser and play the videos with SMPlayer (on Linux). On Windows 10 you can use Metrotube.
>>
>>51399040
I just stuck a couple of those and an old Radeon 9600se into a Pentium 3 running XP. It plays Portal and Half Life 2 better than I expected and sort of manages some light modern web browsing. Apart from that, you're not doing much with those. Even a Pentium 4 is going to want DDR2.

>>51401132
Want some 4 MB SIMMs?
