We actually need the make and model of your computer or the make and model of the motherboard if it is a custom build in order to help you out here. But you can go to a manufacturer's web site like Crucial and use their configurator to find out the number of expansion slots you have, the maximum amount of RAM per slot, and what modules would be compatible with your computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

you have ddr one, no ddr2 will work

your best bet after going to the crucial site is go back to newegg and order a 512 meg stick of ddr 1

one gig sticks will be a little pricey for that computer even if they are supported

noone is even bidding for your old ram on ebay, cas 3 256 meg stick is kind of just wasting a ram slot

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
