Motherboard question

  Crazy legs 21:17 26 Nov 2007

Hi, I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help me here or not.

Basically I've recently fitted more RAM to my home PC (512MB) thanks to the advice of people off this siste and to be fair it's a lot better. The guy that fitted it for me is a friend of my Fathers and say's he can get me 2GB of RAM to make it even quicker than it already is. He's asked me to find the following information.

When he fitted the memory he got 2 x 1 GIG with PC 3200. All I know is that it's something to do with the Motherboard on the system. The motherboard is made by NEC and the PC is an I Media 5061 by Packard Bell, the serial number is 024000520339 if that's any help.

Any idea what I should be looking for here, the computer is quite old mind, think my bro bought it back in 2002.
