hi to all,


i am looking to upgrade my ddr2 ram for my old fujitsu esprimo p5720 desktop but i am not sure if a 4 gb dimm is compatible or if i have to install 2 x 2 gb dimms


the computer is seating since it have only 1 gb or ram but from time to time i use it for internet with a linux bootable cd


the ddr2 must be intel certified since there ddr2 ram for amd as well


the motherboard is based on the intel iq 33 chipset  and the model is the d2581

max supported ram - 8 gb


many thanks in advance

Whenever I have a RAM question I head to Crucial.  Crucial doesn't offer a 4GB module for this machine.  The machine has four slots (2 banks of 2).  According to Crucial you don't have to populate both slots, but performance will be better if you do.  So, the maximum RAM would be four 2GB sticks.


I started using Crucial when I ordered a bare bones kit from a company and the RAM had issues.  After multiple attempts to get the company to get me RAM that would work in the machine I went to Crucial and have never had an issue using the RAM they recommend for the machine I'm purchasing it for.

It should as there are four slots and the max is 8GB, 

I would get a Mushkin kit, see what you can get on the inter webs and push it to 8GB.

You got a great machine there, sure its old but you got some nice specs and once you pop 8GB in that it can still hang on today with that core 2 making it 64bit capable and add on linux you can have a nice system to browse with.
