I have got 512MB RAM in my 3Ghz processor so I want to upgrade my RAM. The problem is I dont know what kind of RAM it is. Is there any way to know?

I am thinking of upgrading my RAM to 1Gig. Is that ok? Should I do it? Coz I play games sometimes and they seem to run slow in my computer.

Thanks

If you want to purchase more, go to one of the memory websites like Crucial, Corsair, Kingston, Patriot, etc., and use their configurator. You put in information about your computer, like make, model number, etc., or if it's a home built, the motherboard model number. It then tells you what RAM your computer uses and what your upgrade options are. If you have a problem, post back with your computer specs.

It would help to know the model number of your Asus board, so we can know for sure how many slots you have and is the max amount of RAM it will support. It likely has four memory slots. Where do you live? Seems most folks in the states buy from newegg.com. With motherboard model number we can give specific recommendations.

512 is alright and is good enough to play games IMO,.

but 1g will cut down lag and 2gB is really the highest you should need.( if you want 2GB)

Most really high end games reccomend 1GB.

You have two options with that board. Firstly you could add another 512 meg (for a total of 1 gig) or you can buy 2 x 1 gig chips and use those to give you 2 gig. The mobo only has 2 RAM slots so it is a bit limiting. Unless you do very graphic intensive work or play the latest graphical games regularly then just get the extra 512 meg and your system will be just fine (and you save money in the process).
