Can I put a 512 in one slot or a 1 gig and keep the other slot a 256mb. Or do I have to have them the same?
I am not rich and want to upgrade slowly. Just trying to upgrade the memory and make it run a little bit faster. Any help would be great!!!
A little info to help.

Q: Will my system recognize the maximum upgrade?
How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found at http://www.crucial.c...r.aspx?qid=4251.
