According to this click here the board should take 2GB maximum. Seems like PCWorld could have been wrong!.

Hi, and many thanks for your help.Went back to PC World armed with your comments.But dealt with a different member of staff who was very helpful and knowledgable.Only one problem they were out of stock of compatable 1GB ram.Bought a 512mb instead,now runing 1GB only.Never mind.Once again many thanks to you all.Take care,Mike

1GB is pretty good for most machines these days; there will be other bottle necks in the system so any further increases will be negligible.
