Well, if you don't have dual, I would just get it anyway. You should have it though, I'm a little confused. Still, I would just 2 x 1g. Probalbly cheaper than the 512 x 4 so yeah. I dunno. check prices and see which is cheaper than the other. Yeah.

My specs are listed in that .jpg in my sig:

[img] code is OFF - So here's a link to a jpeg I made of some of my computer info taken from Everest: http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2004-.../everestme.jpg

---------------------------

Nice info Jac, I'm going to definitely get those programs you listed. Thanks everyone else too, thank you all, and thank you to you.

Now, about Ram..

My motherboard has three Ram slots, the first two right next to each other, and the third separated basically by a capacitor thing.

||.| <-- like so

I have the first two with the 512MB's. Could I buy another 1gig stick and put it in the third slot? I'm not too good with Ram, I just know that more usually can't hurt.
