In my computer I have an Intel® Pentium® M Processor 2.00GHz 319MHz running with 512mb of Ram and an ATI MOBILITY RADEON X600 video card.

Do I need to upgrade any of these at this point in time?

I see that all the new computer have at least a gig of ram so I am thinking I should upgrade that. What do you think?

Thank you for your help! :thumbsup:

Its a Labtop correct?

You would need to see what kind of motherboard you have and then you will be able to find out what type of processors you are able to upgrade to.

Ram 512 is kind of weak. Once again when you find out what motherboard you have you will be able to see how much RAM it can handle. Now a days 1gb is average but 2gb is what you want if it can handle it.

What type of comp and model number?
Centurion 5 Case~GA-P35-DS3L Rev2.0~E6550~EVGA 8800GS~3GB GSkill~Cooler Master 650 PRO~Seagate 320GB SATA II~ 2 ASUS 20X Burners~Sound Blaster Audigy SE~ZeroTherm CF900~Acer 22" P221W

You can go to Crucial and use their system scanner tool which will report the number of expansion slots that your motherboard has, the number of modules and the amount of RAM for the slots that are populated, the maximum amount of RAM per slot, and suggest modules that will be compatible with you motherboard.

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