PC Memory Help

OK I have a Gateway PC - model GT5072b. Currently got 1GB ram but am looking to get another 1GB.

I have gone onto Memorybits site and they advise "Kingston 1GB D-RAM DIMM 240-pin" can fit.

Can I leave my existing 1GB and add the new 1GB and this will def work? I'm aware that some PC's have to work in pairs, other's don't, so before I buy 1gb, want to ensure I can simply add another 1GB and my PC will use both!

Ta!!

Hi. I have used orcalogic.co.uk in the past. They also have a memory scanner and I've just checked their site to confirm it is compatible with Vista. HTH

as a caution make sure you back up regularly during the first couple of months, some work fine, some work fine for a few weeks then trash your hdd in the blink of an eye
best ask advice off users of your particular board

That Kingston ram appears to be DDR2 so your computer is probably fairly new and you can put in whatever combination of ram you like, it's old RDRAM on older Pentium 4s that must be installed in pairs.

Check that your PC has four slots though, some cheaper ones only come with two so you may need to replace your current sticks rather than adding more.
