Athlon 64 x2 250 - How much RAM does this CPU support?

hello everybody,

i know we are in 2017 now, but i need to upgrade the RAM of a system with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 250 'Regor'.

If i were to decide anything, i would definitely not invest in this system. But to make a long story short: i need to know how much RAM this CPU can handle. I tried google and some of sites that offer spec sheets, couldn't find anything about possible RAM-sizes yet.

Can you help me? I'd be very happy, as this is a great chance to at least temporarily calm down my mom.

Very much looking forward to your advice, thank you in advance!

The amount of RAM a system can use is dependent on the motherboard.  You will need to check the specs/compatibility on your motherboards manufacturers website for the amount and speed of RAM that the motherboard can use.

Just off the top of my head, it would handle 8 GB per slot, so 32 GB if mainboard has 4 slots.

Any ideas if an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ can support 16gb of RAM?

@RL10,

Depends on the Manufacturer of the motherboard that you will be using. Seems like most supports up 8 GB of RAM but did see one Gigabyte Motherboard that does support 16GB of RAM. Their may be more I just didn't look through all of the compatible Motherboards. You can do that yourself from this link: https://www.pc-specs.com/cpu/AMD/Athlon_64_X2/Athlon_64_X2_Dual_Core_4000+/120/Compatible_Motherboar...
