Maybe an easy question to answer but just incase i thought i`d ask.. I have a DELL Vostro GX 520 witha 512 mb memory and i`d like to upgrade it, i have seen a clip on youtube and it looks fairly straight forward but i dont know wether

1, i need to buy a dell upgrade, or will anymake do? (any suggestions)

2, wether to get 1 or 2? (2x1gb or 1x2gb)

3, will i lose all my data?

4, will it have any effect on the computer/ break it in anyway?

thanks in advance for any help...

Just go to the Crucial Memory Scanner website and run their scanner tool. (click here) It will answer all your questions and recommend the memory modules that you need to buy (and Crucial is good memeory).

Their Support section also has a video tutorial, telling you how to fit the modules.

No, you won't lose data, and your computer should recognise and benefit from the memory straight away.

if you have vista or W7 you need 2gb of RAM 1gb for XP.
