I wanna upgrade my ram on my old pc but im not sure if the ram i want will work with my motherboard...

Anyway this is the cuurent ram in my pc...

Maximum Memory Capacity: 2048MB
Currently Installed Memory: 512MB DDR PC2700
Available Memory Slots: 1
Number of Banks: 2
Dual Channel Support: No
CPU Manufacturer: AuthenticAMD
CPU Family: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2800+ Model 10, Stepping 0
CPU Speed: 2074 MHz

Now the ram i want to buy is this:

Kingston KVR667D2N5/1G Valueram Computer Memory 1GB PC5300 DDR2 667MHz 240 Pin Dimm

I will be taking the old 512 out and putting in two 1gb sticks...

Any advice?

Thanks in advice

Go the Crucial Route ~ Much cheaper in the long run. click here

Just run the checker on their site.

If I remember PC2700 ram is 184 pin so I doubt if you will be able to fit a DDR2 module as it will not fit your motherboard.

I would recommend Crucial.

A lifetime warranty, and money back if it doesn't work.

Ok just done some searching and found this...

Computer Memory 1GB PC2700 DDR 333Mhz 184pin DIMM

Cheaper than crucial i gues this will fit...

Am i correct?

but if it's high density ram [ and they try to flog it on ebay ] it won't work.

Spend a few extra pennies and get it from cruicial, if it don't work they will replace.

Ifany spelling mistakes please excuse as automatic promotion and half a doxen pints inflicts the brian.:-)

You have been given good advice by three posters.

If you want to save money, buy it, but don't winch if you have a problem.

Yes that will work.
It is also a good price.
I tend to buy my memory from crucial but if you can get a better deal else where go for it.

The thing I like about crucial is if it doesn't work they will replace it with no aruments.
