I bought the appropriate RAM from ebay which is 1GB but it comes in 2 pieces of 512MB.

Someone had advised me that all you do is unclip the old RAM and replace with the new - simple - however what about when u have 2?

Thanks guys,

And if you are adding a thrid ram then the one you have currebtly put it in the DDR solt 3. You should see the slot labels above. use slot 1,2,3

Yep thats it. Its coz when you have like a 1gb set they tend to work better in dual. so just to that and you shoud be fine and no it wont affect any of your pc files

if your old one is more than 512 then you leave it were it is and put the other two in the other slots, the highest is always first.

Thanks guys, rep added, im back with my super fast pc now hehe...only thing, theres only 2 slots in my system?? Not sure why!
I installed the 2 new cards and so far so good. At first I was getting a strange beeping noise but it was because I wasnt clipping them in right.
