Zotac HD-ID11-U 1GB memory

I have been using my Zotac HD-ID11-U Zbox for a little bit now.  Recently I found a stick of 1GB DDR2 6400 ram sitting around my house.  I believe that I originally bought it to put in my Acer REVO 1600, but I haven’t been seeing any playback problems with it.  The Acer only has 1GB of ram in it currently, and I had read articles about it needing 2GB if you want to be ably to do 1080 video.  I don’t have any 1080 videos, because they take up too much space on the server.  Actually it’s mostly likely because I don’t have a 1080p tv.  So here is what I’m going to change I am going to remove:

  • CORSAIR VS2GSDS667D2 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Memory
    • Newegg Item #: N82E16820145172
    • Price: $29.99 (Free with Zotac)

and replace it with

  • Crucial CT12864AC800 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Memory
    • Newegg Item #: N82E16820148165
    • Price: $23.99 (2010/02/13)

I don’t think that I should have any problems with this setup.  The Zotac has dedicated memory for the video card, where the Acer Revo does not, this means that the Zotac should have more memory available for the system to use.

The reason that I am doing this, is so that I can put the 2GB stick of ram in my laptop.  Currently it only has 2.5GB of ram.  A 2GB stick (same as listed above), and one of the 512MB sticks that came in the laptop.  This should help out running those virtual machines.
