when we got my computer we kinda went economical and only got 256 mb, but its a p4, 2.0gigs, and a 128mb radeon 9600se card. I thought that ram was really the only thing holding my computer back, so i bought another 512mb of ram. That would make a total of 768mb of ram. Will that make my computer 3x faster?

and tell me that this ram is good, i know that it will work in my computer, but does micron make good ram. Because i know that crucial is one of the best ram you can get, and micron makes crucial...

btw if you check you will notice that i bought that 3 seconds before the auction ended :p

You better hope the other 128MB of RAM you have is PC2700, otherwise you could encounter some stability problems. Micron is ok...a bit economic. The thing truly holding your system back now is the 9600se...we figured out what se really means. ****-e.

well i currently have 256, and yea its pc2700 i checked more than once

but the graphics card is not that bad, i havent had any graphics issues with my favorite games like call of duty, or desert combat. Besides i wasnt about to dump over 150 into a graphics card when the games i play dont require top of the line ones

it wil be fine. As long as ur mobo supports DDR ram and the other strip or RAM is DDR 333 it will work fine.

Did you only have 1 strip of ram before?

DDR is Dual Channel...basicly it lets the computer acces 2 or more strips of memory at 1 time. So basicly to take advantage of it you have to have more then 1 stick of memory. Either way your fine cuz if you only had 1 stick before u will have 2 soon.

But ya it will work fine
