    Can you guy help, the last time I tried it rejected it. I thought I had it down for my computer I bought DDR double sided ram that supported 3 mhz's or somethin like that and one of them matched the one I have now I have established that my computer only takes "single" sided RAM, so can you help me find a 1gb that meets this?

    Use CPU-Z to see what kind of ram you have, they tell us everything it says

    From that information, we ascertain (using a specification of the motherboard) that:

    Your motherboard has:
    You are currently using one slot with 512MB, meaning one slot is unused. You should really buy your ram in a pair of identical sticks. What you can do is try to find a kit of 2x1GB PC-3200 DIMM ram for the best performance that you can get on that motherboard.

    Here is a list from newegg of that: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....amp;Order=PRICE

    That Wintec brand looks good and this WILL work in my computer right? About my Computer, on a 1-5 basis how good do you think it is now, and how much better can it get?

    That ram should work.

    Your computer is quite outdated now, and your CPU might bottleneck the performance of a new video card, but you'll see a performance gain regardless.
