I went to Egghead, and all the choices! I would like to up the RAM on my computer, but have never done it before. There were so many choices on egghead, i have NO idea what one to get!

I have attached a Report from Belarc that list's everything on my computer, I am very into gaming (World Of Warcraft - Wrath Of The Lych King) I hope this will help you steer me in the right direction. Many years ago, i tried replacing the 'sticks' but they would not work and wound up having to take it to a shop and paying big bucks and buying yet another stick. I can no long afford such expenses.

Do you have any suggestions with the many offers they have?

Totally overwhelmed in choices

Your motherboard supports up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM. The OCZ Vista Edition Dual Channel 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2 x 1024MB) would do well. It's a good idea to keep the memory all the same. Since the memory is inexpensive, that shouldn't be too difficult.

The description for that link says For Vista, will it work for a system that is using XP?

(Or did i misunderstand the description?)

Thank you for all y our help! You all here absolutely ROCK!

Yes, the Windows version running on the system won't matter - I think the "Vista Edition" is a little in-joke by the manufacturer celebrating how much Vista helps memory sales... :thumbsup:
