why do you need a new Mobo? Just buy a 512MB Ram stick and put it in. Check the motherboard details to determine SD or DDR, I would at a pre-sumption say you have SDRAM.But go here and determine the correct type you need.

The instruction book for the mobo states it will only take 2 x 128 so I am at the limit...unless anyone knows different?
mobo is a CN810.
