Upgrading my PC

  mullet 22:39 14 Apr 2006

Hi all

I'm toying with upgrading my PC but am at a loss as to what I can fit. I thinking of more fitting 2 x 512 ram and a 32mb graphics card.

I know they are currently 2 x 256mb pc2700 ddr333 dimm 184 pin, but I'm not sure about the ecc non-ecc bit?

and can I fit any graphics card ? at the moment mine is an onboard 8mb thing.

thanks in advance for any help.

Do you know what make and model of motherboard you have?

Are you running windows XP?

its a k7 triton ga-7vm400m via km400 chipset

You can use any 8X AGP graphics card.

Your system can take upto 2 X 1Gb moduels of ram pc1600, pc2100 or pc2700.

Use non-ecc. ( non error checking ram).

thanks for that ed-o, you're a star.

One more thing, what about a cpu upgrade?

Then you can put 2 X 512Mb dimms of PC2700 and install an AGP graphics card of you choice.;-)

You've been a great help ed-o, many thanks and a happy easter :-)
