Thanks for the info guys, I guess I'll just get a 1GB stick and replace the old ones. Is getting a new graphics card essential? Because at the moment my constraints are monetary, I don't have a great deal to spend.
PS: I live in the United Kingdom, so I don't think I can order from the site you linked to.
EDIT: I used the Crucial Scanner and it came up with these results....
168-pin DIMM Banking: 2 (2 banks of 1)
Chipset: VIA Apollo KT266
Error Detection Support: ECC and non-ECC
Max Unbuffered SDR SDRAM: 1536MB
Module Types Supported: Unbuffered only
Max Unbuffered DDR SDRAM: 2048MB
Max Component Density: 512
SDR SDRAM Frequencies: PC100 and PC133
184-pin DIMM Banking: 2 (2 banks of 1)
Graphics Support: AGP 4X
Supported DRAM Types: SDR SDRAM and DDR SDRAM
USB Support: 1.x Compliant
This motherboard has two 168-pin DIMM socket which support up to 1.5GB of standard SDRAM and two 184-pin DIMM sockets supporting up to 2GB of DDR SDRAM.
Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: Your computer takes two kinds of memory DDR,SDRAM
Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 1536MB,2048MB. Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.
Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.
Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
Your system does not support dual channel.
Q: Does my computer support ECC memory?
Your system supports ECC. You can put non-ECC modules into an ECC system, but be sure not to mix ECC and non-ECC modules within a system. Install the same type of modules that are already in your system.
Q: Will my system recognize the maximum upgrade?
How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found at http://www.crucial.com/kb/answer.asp?qid=4251
Number of Slots:
Each memory slot can hold DDR PC3200,DDR PC2700,DDR PC4000,SDRAM, PC133 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
To see the memory installed in your computer click the Scan My System button below.
So I should be looking to replace my current memory with 1GB of DDR PC3200,2700 or 4000?
EDIT2: I've searched for the module suggested by Crucial to try and find it in the UK and found this:http://www.bizrate.co.uk/ram_memoryupgrade...d492758242.html
With my computer specs provided above, can anyone tell me if this is what I should order?
