Ok bassically i just bought a cheap machine because im doing a networking course and needed another. its 2.8Ghz but only 256mb RAM so i wanted to stick another 256mb in it, but one problem...

I CANT FIND ANY INFORMATION ABOUT MY MOTHERBOARD ANYWHERE ON THE NET WHAT SO EVER!!

So i dont know what type of memory/RAM my motherboard supports..

This is the information i have on it:

System Model
Gateway 2000 3260uk


Main Circuit Board
Board: Intel Corporation
Serial Number: TGSR50316893
Bus Clock: 133 megahertz
BIOS: Intel Corp. SR84510A.46T.0016.P07.0411290956 11/29/2004

(I think either SR84510A or SR84510A.46T.0016.P07.0411290956 is my motherboard)

Memory Modules
248 Megabytes Installed Memory

Slot 'J6G1' has 256 MB (serial number D9E4C408)
Slot 'J6G2' is Empty


Below is the URL of the product i bought:

Not sure what's up with their site, anyway if you click the + next to motherboard then SPD it will say what's in there for memory speed, ask what you can have, also ask what the performance improvement will be if you go from 200 to 400mhz

Glad you like Everest

you could use the PC100, but it will slow down the other stick to that speed.
PC133 is pretty cheap these days, would be better to pick up another stick of that.
