I noticed the slot next to my current stick is different; I assume the slot next to my current stick is for dualing. I believe the two slots were different. Also would I need another stick from the same company or any stick that is 512MB?

And is there a word for these sticks other than "stick"; stick sounds rather primitive.

Preferably, you want the same type of RAM from the same company. Then put it into the same COLORED slot as the first stick.

As far as titles go, I don't know of anything else to call it other than a "stick of RAM". There may be another title, but "stick" is the most common accepted term.

looking at your system im going to say your ram is probably pc2700 this will effect what kind of ram u need to buy. id suggest getting 2 x 512 sticks of ram which is pc2700 and an AGP version of an x800 GPU.. anyone else think that the ram is pc2700?

Rather impressive. The one I have is indeed a pc2700. So I should buy another pc2700 512MB identical to the one I have, and connect it to the other blue slot which isn't taken?

I haven't looked at the specifications for the x800 GPU but why would it be a good card for me?
