Thread: RAM Upgrade

    Default RAM Upgrade

    Hi,

    I need advise with RAM upgrade.

    My PC currently has 1GB RAM and I wanted to add another 1GB.

    I checked my PC spec and it states,

    Maximum allowed = 4 GB* (4 x 1 GB)
    Speed supported = PC2-5300 MB/sec
    Type = 240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM

    So does that mean I can just look for another 1GB RAM of same speed and type, and I should able to install without compatibility problem?

    Any other information I need?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    I had upgraded my ram which was similar to your situation.

    I just went to Sim Lim Sq and buy the 1GB Ram which was the same spec as the current one and install into my motherboard.

    Look herefor pricelists. I suggest you refer to Fuwell/Bell list, as they are quite reflective of market rate
