RAM memory upgrade

  Mrpmr 19:07 18 Jan 2005

Hi im new to these forums so sorry if this is in the wrong section.

Anyway I currently have a PC with 256MB of PC133 memory. To make it faster for some applications, particularly a game im thinking of buying called World Of Warcraft, im want to upgrade the RAM.

The stuff ive found is detailed below:

Ebuyer 256MB PC133 168pin Extra Value SDRAM

What id like to know is firstly does anyone know if this is good stuff to buy and secondly I cant decided between buying 2 X 256MB so I have a total of 768MB or just buying one so I have 512MB, is there any benefit to either.

Thanks for your time:)

Windows 98 & Me are limited to 512 MB I believe.

Generally speaking, the more the better with RAM; but how useful it will be depends on your OS - win98 will not easily manage more than 512mb.

Take a look at click here and enter your details; it will tell you what's what.

When i bought the PC it came with windows me. However i upgraded it to windows xp, which it seems to run fine.

I would get a stick of 512 and put it in the slot nearest to the processor and move the 256 to the next slot.
