I need to get more RAM
    #4126695 - 05/03/05 08:24 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

My computer currently has 256MB RAM. It's got two 184-pin DDR DIMM slots. What type of memory do I have to buy? Anything specific?

You probably want to buy the same brand that you already have in there and go with the PC3200 or 3500 if you can afford it. How much more you want to buy depends on your machine and what you use it for.

Simply just get another stick rated at the same speed.. On your stick off ram it should be.. PC-**** like pc-3200 or something.

Would it HAVE to be the same make as the one I already have?

I don't think that it has to be, but you might run into performance issues if it is not. I'm not too sure about that because I've always used the same kind.
