I want to upgrade my memory but I know they have to match,this is what I got from the Crucial scan =Your Crucial System Scanner Results
DDR PC3200 512 MB = Do I need more information than this? I have Everest and Belarc on the pc if they will tell me anymore?

Run Everesthome and post your motherboard details,then we can check out the ram.

Crucial has provided several erratic scan results lately.

Everest is showing "unknown" for some reason,got this from Belarc (Board: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. nVidia-nForce2 1.x)

ECC or non ECC as an example.

You're not going to buy the Crucial memory are you? Thats why you are asking about other info required.
Its up to you but theres been a few lately that have jotted down the Crucial scan info and bought cheap memory and it didn't work.

I'd just buy the Crucial stuff.

Its up to you though.

ECC or non ECC as an example.?
Was going to get the Crucial but wanted to make sure of a match..

Looks like crucial is spot on today.If you do have a problem when buying from Crucial,they guarantee there ram or money back or replacement no problem.

Just go to Crucial and order what the scan showed (DDR PC3200 512 MB)

Thanks for all your help,will mark as "resolved" now..
