Alright, my situation is kind of confusing.
I have an old system I am giving to a cousin:
I am wanting to upgrade the memory on it. It has 2 slots for memory, and right now it has a 128MB stick in one of the slots. It says it has a max of 512MB of RAM.
Most of the memory I have seen for cheap (not much extra money to spend) is high density. It says that basically I couldn't use it.
For example, the basic one of those (the first). Would these not work with my PC? I asked on another tech forum and they said it would, as did all of my friends who know a lot about building PCs. Most haven't even heard of high density memory, though.
Now, I am wondering... will this memory be compatible? If not, is there another cheap alternative?
Basically, I am just wanting to know if it will work with my system, or if anyone can point me to some cheap memory that will.
Now, question number two:
The system has 128MB stick so far, and it can hold 2 sticks total with a max of 512mb. Could I just get a 512MB stick and it would cap at 512? Will the slot not hold 512MB (do I need to just get 2 256MB sticks and remove the old 128MB stick)? How would I know the maximum on each slot?
Thanks for the help, I really need it.
