and, I think from your post 38 you have

(I have 2 sticks of extra RAM already - they say 'DDR512PC3200'. I can buy new RAM if necessary


and as you only have the two slots, to upgrade to 2Gb which you suggest you intend to do, in your post 41, you will have to buy 2 x 1Gb ram sticks.

My advice would be go here
http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner/

you do not have to buy from there, and use the scanner
It will tell you what you can have, and indeed what you have

It is now some 13 days since your last reply

Just wondered how you were progressing.
Would you kindly update your thread when you have chance.

Hello again. I don't have access to the computer yet so I haven't really progressed in that regard. In any case, I might be considering buying or building a computer from scratch for a higher quality PC.

In any case, the information you've provided was very useful and was a springboard to understanding a lot more about the modern state of affairs in computing (I used to know a lot about it but that was 7 or 8 years ago).

Thanks again

Thanks for the update :thumbsup:
If you do decide to build your own start a topic @ http://www.geekstogo...-and-upgrading/ stating your maximum budget - what the PC will be mainly used for and any components that you may already have such as screen, keyboard, mouse etc and I among others will be happy to help you choose parts.
