Hey, I'm upgrading my computer, and I want to get another gig of ram... I already have 2 Crucial brand 512's in there, but I only have 3 slots... what do I do? Buy 2 one gig RAM sticks and sell the 512's... or buy one 1 gig ram stick?

I ran EVEREST Home Edition, and this is what it says...



Motherboard Name Asus A7N8X v2.0 Deluxe
Bus Type Dual DDR SDRAM
Expansion Slots 5 PCI, 1 AGP Pro
RAM Slots 3 DDR DIMM



Please e-mail me or re-post, my e-mail address is edited out email for security purposes... and I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to computers lol

If you want to run the memory in dual channel mode you must run them in matched pairs. You will have to buy 2 1gig sticks to keep the dual channels.

Connect3D is a licenced ATI video card builder. It has nothing to do with any graphics enhansement.
