    I want to upgrade my PC to 1GB RAM (from 512MB) but are unsure where is the best place to get it and how much it costs. Also, how do you know what sort will work in your system? All I know is it's DDR RAM.

    Any help would be appreiciated.
    Thanks.

    First of all, what you need to do is find out what RAM you already have. And with that I mean finding out the speed of your current RAM module... You can download a program called "dr. Hardware" at "http://www.dr-hardware.com/" to find that out. It might be a little confusing, but well, it's there Anyway, the reason for this is that if you get a RAM module that runs at a different speed, you'll probably run into a lot of problems like computer crashes and stuff like that. Also make sure that your motherboard supports an extra 512MB of RAM. Some older motherboards don't, so plugging in extra memory will just be pointless. If you have a motherboard manual or something, take a look at the maximum RAM memory supported by your motherboard. Next step is to just go out and buy an extra module, as long as it runs at similar speed as your current one. Plug it into your pc and it should work immediately. Good luck!

    Corsair (I like their Twinx and "LL" series). Mushkin also rocks!

    More RAM ONLY helps if you are getting "Stutters" caused by your system paging to hard drive a lot due to lack of memory. It will NOT increase your FPS.

    ...Corsair XMS all the way. Owange ram and it's not the most expensive either. The Pro series is also amazing although it costs alot more.

    I am currently debating on whether to go up to a gig or not... I think before this year is over I'll have a gig [img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif[/img] Games are starting to "want" it but not really "need" it.

    Shadow Eagle:

    try using the search function of the forum if you can please.

    Some of us have already instructed others how to find out what kind of RAM they need because they didn't know how to find out and where to purchase it..

    The other threads are a good read...

    Hope that helps out
