Installing More RAM Advise
Posted on 2006-05-09
I would like to install some more RAM onto my computer, I currently have 128, I would like to install a 512 as well, can you just this into the computer along side the the 128?
I would also like some advise on which type to buy, here is my computers motherboards details:

Don't know if you need this but:

Note about the USB features: There is support for 6 USB ports on the motherboard, all of which are active at the same time (thus no need for a USB selection jumper). 2 of the USB ports are on the back panel, the onboard F_USB2 header can be connected to two USB ports and the onboard F_USB1 header can be connected to two USB ports.
