Hello folks,

Does anyone know what type of RAM Dell Dimension 3000 require...I replaced my kingston 512mb module with kbyte after my kingston threw in the towel and now, although its not too bad, I have noticed that there is a performance sacrifice..

I read that to get maximum results from memory installations, one needs memory configured to the motherboard else there would be problems...

I'd like to throw in 2X512MB but do not want to use this make of chip..any suggestions would be much appreciated...

My current mainboard is the OEM btw..:-)

I always go to www.crucial.com and let them pick it for me. Can't go wrong, and no obligation to buy from them.
