How can I find out what kind of Ram my system uses? I want to buy more RAM for my pc but I have no idea which one I should buy. & I've looked at Ram online and some mention ddr, sdram, pins,etc. None of which I know. lol. Sorry I'm still trying to understand more about pc's. I think my system uses SDRAM. But if I upgrade I want the fastest and best. My system can only go up to 512MB Ram supposedly (on two chips), thats what some guy said at the pc store when I took it there. I forgot to ask him what type of Ram I need. So I'm trying to look for the fastest 256MB Ram chips. Now if it is SDRAM what is the fastest I can use on my pc? I currently run a p3 800mhz, with 80gb hd. So I want the best ram. the fastest and best for my pc. and i want to find out what ram my pc uses and which one I can buy that will be the fastest.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TEAM!!!!!

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!!!

ALWAYS THERE WHEN WE NEED YA'LL

Oh I forgot to mention. I need the best Type of Ram to run audio recording and editing software I use. & I'm gonna buy a vid card soon for 3d gaming so I need something fast. I run audio editing software everyday. It goes by the name of "ADOBE AUDITION". I make a living off of editing. I will benefit more with the best Ram to run this. If you need the sys req for adobe audition to recommend what i need go to www.adobe.com and search for "Adobe Audition".

Thank you.

go to www.crucial.com and input your motherboard make and model (unless this is a name brand computer...in which case enter that info) they will tell you EXACTLy what type of ram is compatable with your system...and they will sell said ram to you at a very decent price
