Hi,

There's a 1GB RAM stick currently installed and there's 1 available slot left.

I'm just wondering if 2 RAM sticks with different sizes (2GB + 1GB) would run with my motherboard. I'm actually planning on buying a 2GB RAM but i'm not sure if it will run with the 1GB RAM i already have.

Also, what "type" should I tell to the store?

Thanks a lot.

Write the current specs of your current stick down and get the shop to match it. Can't go wrong that way.

In theory the 2GB and 1GB sticks should work fine together.

P.S. the current RAM specs should be printed on a sticker on the RAM module itself.

Alright I might just bring the stick.
Will it really work? The 1gb 2gb combination? Just wanted to make sure my money doesn't go to waste. :)

You might want to check your warranty or guarrantee if opening the case will void the you're warrant or guarrantee. I've heard certains ones will become void due to this, recently I read it in a Computer Active magazine.
