Hi I am running xp home on my desktop with 2x256mb of ram on board and not surprisingly, the performance is pants. I am looking to upgrade and have 3 ram slots in total. What combination of ram memory to fill these slots would give the optimum performance? I would prefer not to spend more than approx £50. Thanks
You may well be able to use 400Mhz PC3200, but check with Crucial's scanner first. If you're dumping all the existing ram, go for PC3200 instead of PC2700. The odd thing about Crucial's recommendations is that they do not show a preference if you can use both. Adding one 1Gb stick will make a significant difference if you want to keep cost down.
