Re: How much RAM can my computer handle?
Look I'll try to save you some confusion about the speed of your ram. Some ram, is ddr, so that mean that two sticks of ram are working together to process the data. Say both were pc3200, the total speed would be 400mhz because each stick was 200mhz. When you get your second stick of 256mb ram (3200), that will be another 200 mhz, so your total speed would be 400 mhz, if you have dual channel ram (ddr).
Rig -- Emachines T5026, 3.06ghz P4, 300W Bestec PSU, 160 sata hd, 512mb dual channel 3200 ram @ 3-3-5-8, ATI Radeon 9250 pci, dual layer 16x dvd+/-rw.
