hi all

first post but i have used this site to get info recently when my hard drive crashed. thanks.

i am looking at upgrading my ram.

apparently my system can only handle 512MB (according to crucial.com) and i already have 256MB.

i can purchase nova 256MB SDRAM PC133 on an auction site but i would like to know if it is non ecc and unbuffered.

the seral No. is N3264P63-81ALS732 (according to the vendor).

can anyone answer my question?

Hi schmichael. Welcome to Geeks to Go. Google is your friend, especially for doing research before making a purchasing decision. I did a search for nova 256 sdram, some hits but nothing useful. I don't know nova myself. I would stick with ones I know about, like crucial, kingston, simpletech, samsung etc.... Maybe someone else will post with a better answer. If it were me, I would look for something else.

I agree with austin, better to stick with name brands for quality. two things I would suggest you check out- first, do you have an open ram slot in your machine?
second, what brand of ram is currently in your system?
check out pricewatch, you might find some ram pretty cheap.
here is a search on PC133 at newegg, with some good deals on refurbished kingston ram. by refurbished, it checks out as OK by the factory, and is $10-20 cheaper than new.
