I currently have 2 512mb Kingston Ram sticks, here is what it says exactly on the sticks

ValueRAM
KVR333X64C25/512
A4351513

2nd one has the same information except it adds 2.5v on there

both running on an Asus Motherboard.

i have 4 ram slots that have ram in the first and 3rd slot, im guessing this is duel channel? I'm not to sure but im just wondering if i can get two more 512 sticks and stick them in the 2nd and 4th slot to give myself a total of 2gb, and if i should get a specific type of ram that could work with it. Like, will corsair work with kingston, or must it be kingston only.

Also if you could, give direct links to the product on a website that sells it such as www.newegg.com

If anymore information is needed please tell me.

Thank you ahead of time.

Also would it be possible to upgrade the CPU to a much more advanced cpu? currently a 3ghz Pentium 4. Maybe a much more advanced AMD cpu?

Your RAM is the Kingston PC2700 here is the link for it at Newegg

and as for the CPU you would need a new motherboard if you want to switch from Intel to AMD.

you msut get virtually the same RAM for it to work in dual channel. i wouldn't recommend you swtich mobos because P4s do the job(i hate them personally). you right now haven't got it in dual channel i think. check the manual, some mobos havd DC on 1 and 3 some on 1 and 2 but i think ASUS generally go for 1 and 2. also you may, depending on your mobo, get instead some PC3200 sticks instead. look at Corsair value select but PC2700 is still fine

i have an a8n-sli
for 2 sticks it requires them in slot 1 and 3

the 2 channels need to have a matching cas latency and size to work
stickin them in slot 1 and 2 = no dice

might differ from board to board

You have to be careful with some Mobo's as they may have 4 slots but some of the older Intel chipsets only support 2 slots - so the other 2 won't work.

new question

what type of motherboards can support this type of video card?
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814131004

something about PCI Express x16, i am pretty sure my motherboard does not have that, i could search on newegg and find motherboards that have that support but i just want to know which ones are reliable and worth my money. And hopefully support AMD and dual channel memory

That would be a PCI-e motherboard

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813136165 This one is a Crossfire MoBo

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131540 This one is a SLi MoBo

Both of those motherboards are AMD Socket 939
