What memory can I use to upgrade my Computer

I have a DG35EC motherboard,http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dg35ec/sb/CS-028864.htm#dimms

But this link mentions I need to use SPP memory, and my supplier hasnt heard of it and says I should try 2048MB DDR2 800MHZ NON-ECC UNBUFFERED modules.

Does anyone think these may or may not work.

Thanks

Have you tried one of the memory suppliers memory checkers? http://www.crucial.com it'll show you what's installed and what's available.

I think you mean SPD (Serial Presence Detect) memory. This type of memory places certain informaion on th ememory chip that the motherboard/BIOS can then access (timing informaion, manufacturer and serial number are some)

Only problem is I am wanting to go from $gb to 8, and some sites say it can but others say it cant, and yes sorry about the spelling error it is SPD

Well, the Crucial site says it'll take 8GB (you might have to throw away the memory currently fitted mind - which I tend to do so there's no compatibility issues). I've used Crucial for over 10 years and, in that time only had 1 memory selection that hasn't worked - I sent it back and they refunded me..... and, it was incorrect because someone had swapped the original motherboard and I was selecting memory based on PC manufacturer/model .... like they say, if you use the selector to select the memory they'll guarantee it to work.
