I am planning to upgrade the RAM in my system and I found the two SDRAM slots, but I also noticed 2 other ones right next to them.

What are the onther two slots for?

and if it says PC 2700 on the RAM itself, is that the only kind i can use in it?

thanks, :thumbsup:

PC2700 is actually DDR Ram, not SDRam. 2700 refers to the speed of data transfer, higher numbers being faster. Faster RAM will run fine at slower speeds so for example PC3200 would be okay. However PC2100 probably would fail.

Your picture is too fuzzy for me to tell what the slot layour means. In any case you need to check your motherboard manual for specific instructions on upgrading or changing memory modules. Try the manufacturer's website (google is your friend), most hardware mfrs have info on old as well as current models.

Crucial and Kingston both have web pages that will help you select appropriate memory for your motherboard. Again Google will lead you to them.
