i Have 4 X 1gb GEIL ram with a cass latancy of 5 5 5 12 timings, its some of the best ram you can buy, cost me £120 for all 4 sticks, they are hardly used as they are on my home computer and i am never at home! also only 9 months old!

how much do you want to pay for them??

Forum rules state you have to set an asking price, you can't ask the op to make you an offer..

Are all 4 sticks for the same PC. If so unless you're running a x64 version of windows it won't recognise it all, so it might be worth saving some cash and just getting three sticks. Sorry to state the obvious if you already knew that.

Your best bet would be to check out Play.com

At £11.49 a stick you can't go far wrong. I have 2gb of this stuff in my Dell and it runs sweet.

If your motherboard can take 2Gb modules in a slot, it would be better getting 2x 2Gb. Provide motherboard make & model & I'll help you find out.

What are you using the PC for? Even if a 32-bit OS cannot recognise all 4Gb, I'd get it over 3Gb.

i just want a faster computer for playing games really. im running 32 bit xp, it was my understanding that it could handle 4gb am i wrong?
#8
it can handle it but the windows system will not recognise the 4th stick as it only does up to the 3gb! i have vista x64 and 4 gbs in that but there is not much difference between the 3 gb an 4 gb so i would recomend you get 3gb of matching ram! and upgrade your graphics card with the saving lol

A 32-bit OS can handle 4Gb of memory. It'll only show up between 3-3.5Gb in windows though - don't worry about it (a detailed explanation here). Saving £10-15 on 1Gb isn't very significant, but it's your call.

What's the rest of your system like - CPU, graphics card, etc?

currently alright but im upgrading it one bit at a time. Ok so i will get 2 sticks of 1gb each (i have 4 slots) and add them to my 2x512 sticks to total 3gb.

I see - in that case getting an additional 2Gb sounds good :thumbsup:

Btw, if your graphics card isn't that good, getting a significantly better one would be a lot better than just increasing the RAM. But I guess doing the latter is a good start, & relatively inexpensive too.

You may also want to consider a single 2Gb module, leaving an extra slot free for future upgrades.

Can anyone tell me...
How do i find out what ram i need?
Is it a case of looking in the side of the computer and buying more of that?

Easiest may be to visit Crucial & run a free scan. It'll tell you the motherboard make+model or system make+model & what's compatible. Post that link here.
Failing which, download & run SIW - it will give you your motherboard make & model. If it doesn't, you may need to open the case & find out. Once you've determined your motherboard make & model, post it here & I'll let you know :thumbsup:
