My white macbook 2.2 Ghz core 2 duo (Macbook 3,1 model identifier) is in dire need of a RAM upgrade. The bus speed is 800MHz but my DDR2 RAM is rated at 667MHz. I've seen some DDR2 RAM at 800 or even 1000 something MGz; given that the bus speed is 800, would it be advantageous to get DDR2 ram that is rated at 800MHz also? Also, is the newer DDR3 RAM incompatible with my oldish motherboard?
Also, I'm not 100% certain of the max RAM capacity of my motherboard. I believe it is 4GB but I might be wrong.
Please recommend the right amount of GB to get and a good value, reliable RAM for my upgrade and where I can buy it. I prefer in store purchases but if it's gotta be a net order, so be it. Please note that I do mainly music editing/recording and that my computing needs aren't particularly complex so I don't necessarily need the top of the line stuff. I'm sure a generic brand would do.
there seems to be conflicting information between the everymac.com and canadaram websites. Everymac states that I can upgrade to 6GB of RAM whereas Canadaram's website implies that only 4GB will be recognised. What do I do?
