I think you could get away with another 256mb, are you running windows 98 ?

Is this your motherboard? click here
As clayton says, if you are running Win98 it doesn't like more than 512MB so you shouldn't go beyond that. There is a way round this limitation but 512MB is plenty for Win98 anyway.

I`m running XP Pro with 800 MHz cpu and 512 RAM from a pc 2 board. It`s quite happy and has given me no trouble. Check with Crucial for the limits of your board.If you can do it add another HDD.
