I am trying to get more RAM memory (DDR1) for my computer. I have already upgraded once with a card of 1 GB, so now I have 2 slots (1 GB + 256 MB) of memory. I would like a new upgrade with 1 or 2 GB of extra memory to put instead of the 256MB card. My problem is that I don't now how much RAM memory my system can accept.
Could you please let me know up to what size of RAM I could upgrade? What compatibility issues might there be and what specifications should the RAM memory I buy have?
The name of my motherborad is Abit VA-20 / ECS KM400-M Deluxe / KM400-M2 / KM400A-M2 / V7-2.
The processor is AMD Athlon XP, 1833 MHz (11 x 167) 2500+.
Using Everest program I also got this about the memory on my motherboard:
