I've never truly understood this, so perhaps someone will be able to explain it!!
I am in the process of updating my mother-in-law's PC, i have put in some Ram that i had laying around, DDR333 - PC2700 (512mb), which has enabled me to install Windows 7 for her. I want to put in the max the motherboard can handle though (2gb), the stuff i took out was DDR 400 (256mb)
What Ram do i need to buy? On e-buyer i can find DDR333 - PC2700 stuff, as i know that works, but it's like £25 per GB, when i put the stuff in mine it was £10 per GB.
I have built a few computers, and upgraded mine several times, and i suppose i've just guessed right when replacing the RAM each time!!
Anybody able to help?
Also, any recommendations for a cheap, basic, graphics card? not for gaming, maybe occasional DVD watching, hers comes out on the Windows experience at 1!!!
