If your finances can handle it, and if the mother board will support more than 1GB RAM, try to get the most RAM you can. You can use a website like Crucial to get the RAM tech specs with their memory advisor tool and then shop around at places like NewEgg, Tiger Direct, etc for the best prices.

RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, flash cards, SSD at Crucial.com

See if you can run SIW, on it to see max memory for MB & ram slots.

Besides the Crucial scan, I cross-check by googling the exact System Specs, then the computer make and model number + RAM upgrade. Then study all of the results carefully until confident that you have the right RAM specs.

There may be some outlier results, for example, that say DDR-2 2700 can run 3200, but unless this is repeatedly confirmed I would not buy anything other than what the most common results report.

Then I would not buy online unless the dealer allows replacement for wrong specs.

For these reasons, it is often easier to take a laptop to the counter at CompUSA or another shop which claims they have the correct RAM at a good price, and where they will help you swap in the RAM on the spot to see if it registers correctly at Computer>Properties and System Information. Phone ahead to be sure.

Carlos, another aspect of W7 is the availability to use Ready Boost. If you can lay your hands on a fast flash drive either usb/sd card if your system has a reader you can see if the drive can be configured to add all or a portion of the size to assist the limited ram.

If i didn't tell you something important ask me! or if I'm doing something wrong tell me what it is plis!! thanks for looking at my first post!!!
Hello, I'm also new.
Well, you see you need at least 1GB ram, like I do, it seems to be working GREAT.
But like stated before you also need more Hard Drive Space.
I have a 160GB harddrive and I have 104GB free out of 148GB but I do have to admit that I have a lot space used up by: TV Shows, Visual Studio, Microsoft Office, Music, so yeah that does take up a lot of room. But I say that you shouldn't run it on the system. Either you upgrade your hardware or just buy a new PC.

I would stick with XP which will run fine on those specs.

There are some good deals out there today for new laptops or desktops.
