Well, first off I'm new. So hello to everyone.

Secondly, It's been awhile since I've used my computer for any gaming. My system is now far from top end, being that it's about 5 years old. Anywho, I figure the least I can do is install more RAM just to help some of the older games I had run better. I only have 512 mb now and Newegg has a sale where I can get 2gb for $18 and free shipping to boot. I've been out of the loop for a number of years and was not sure if this stuff would work with my old setup.

Heres what I have now.

And heres the stuff that Newegg has.


I just want to make sure that this stuff will work before I waste $18 on nothing.
Thanks alot. :thumbsup:

You need DDR RAM, 184 pin.


I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

eh, I knew I could never make out so good. I was looking through the search results and found this.


I was thinking that this should match the RAM that is currently in there, right? I dont know if brand makes a difference but they would both be PC 3200. I'm not sure what brand I have now, I bought it a few years back to upgrade from 256 to 512mb.

At least if I could keep that I would have a gig and a half, tripling what I have now.
