When purchasing a new Server, Workstation or PC to support an expansion card one of the most important things to determine is what type of slot does the motherboard have. There are 3 types of slots that have been used for over the years: ISA, PCI, and PCI Express (PCIe). These are also the most common types of slots that computer motherboards have had for expansion cards. Let’s take a look at each of these:
Usually, you go to Control Panel System and Security System to see the computer’s statistics, including RAM. If you find the amount of RAM is not different, make sure your RAM chips are properly seated on the motherboard or you switch the slots that the RAM sticks sit in. 32 is my new standard as well, this 16 is garbage for hosting lots of test VMs and whatnot. 32 to 64 GB or go home. It's a good read. Reply g-unit1111 24 October 2019 16:23. 1) Both RAM sticks are compatible with the computer,. 2) Your computer is capable of handling 2 GB of RAM. Then it doesn't matter which RAM goes in which slot. If your computer can only take one gig of RAM, then you'll need to take the gig stick back and buy two 512s.
Your motherboard manual will usually tell you which slots are which while the spec sheet of your CPU usually documents the maximum RAM capacity and channels that your PC will be able to support. Once you've located the RAM sockets on your motherboard, gently but firmly slide the RAM sticks in. The ISA Slots are shown in Green in image to the right. This is the oldest slot type that is still available today. Computers with ISA slots are no longer available from major computer manufacturers, Ram PC Systems still sells industrial class systems with ISA slots.

Which Slot Does My Ram Go In Car
PCI slots were the replacment for ISA slots. The PCI Slots are shown in the Red box in the image. PCI slots come in several different versions including 5 volt and 3.3 volt slots, and 32-bit and 64-bit PCI-X slots. PCI slots are going away as well but are still available from some major computer manufacturers but they usually only offer one PCI slot. Ram PC Systems has several different systems available with 2 or more PCI slots.
PCI Express Slots
PCI Express slots are the replacement for PCI slots, and also AGP (used only for video cards). PCI Express, also labeled as PCIe come in numerous bus widths labeled: x1, x2, x4, x8, and x16.
