Windows 7: Ram?

Ram?

I think I have 2GB of DDR2 ram. Is it possible to get 1 or 2 more GB of it installed and will it help with gaming? I game a lot and I think this would help and what else would 1 more GB of DDR2 ram help with?

You only have two slots for RAM. Picture of mother board and moboard specs.

The good news is it came with 2x1GB Ram sticks and you can replace with 2x2GB Ram sticks. Look at Memory and upgrade at link below.

well more ram will defenitly help but we need to know a little more specs but ill do my best to help you

#1 st you should download speccy it will give you all the informantion you need on your system
speccy downloads - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

also more ram will help with gaming of course
also if you do upgrade get vendor recommended and if i were you swap it all out for the same exact all around and if you can get a better cpu and do it yourself look into that too or buy a little bit of a better video card all these will help you perform

Solarstar specs are at my posted links.


Joelkat filling in your specs would be useful for future use on the forum. Go to the links I provided and add anything you have changed or added your self.
