upgrading ram

  delantero 17:23 26 Apr 2005

hi, I have a pentium III (999MHz)which currently has 256 (133)sdram. I would like to upgrade this to 512 but I have heard that I could have compatibilty problems with this old type of ram. If I buy another 256 what are the chances of it working? Would it be better to buy 512 (the max permitted by the motherboard) and replace the ram I have now. I have windows xp pro with service pack 2. Thanks for your help...

If you do as the others have suggested and go to Crucial they guarantee 100% that it will work, if you buy generic memory from anywhere else it might not work as you seem to realise. Go to Crucial on the link above. The RAM you get from Crucial should work with your existing RAM.
