Do you not need DDR 400 (PC3200) type RAM? You should head over to Crucial and get it to do a system scan to be sure.

Agreed - that way you won't end up with useless RAM. This has happened to a few of my colleagues.

what type of RAM does it recommend?,dont i have the choice to buy from somewhere else

Crucial is just a RAM store. It's the one I tend to use and it has a system scan which finds the right RAM for your machine. I think discount code: custompc still works for 4% discount and you can get Quidco as well.

it says

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

does that mean if i want to add more RAM,i should do it in pairs.so say i wanted to add an extra 1GB,i should buy 2 X 512MB instead of buying the 1GB.

Is that right,how can i find out if the ones on ebuyer would work mbeecing

iv just found out,my computer can take

DDR2 PC2-4200
DDR2 PC2-5300
DDR2 PC2-6400
DDR2 PC2-8500
DDR2 PC2-8000

with a maximum of 1GB per slot,the kingston (both links i posted meets the above requirements i think)

whats the difference between the numbers i.e 4200,5300 etc. is it the speeds

Yeah, 4200 runs at 533mhz. 5300 runs at 667mhz and so on. Looks like you could gain some serious benefits as the link you originally posted indicates you're using much slower RAM than your motherboard can take.
