It stops me at 3.25, even though I have 4.
All 4 work in linux.

Either way, I''d say its upgrade time.

Why not save up your pennies until you can buy a new system? It would seem a better thing to do than to dump money into an aging computer.

I know it is DDR2 but I forget the speed. What would the options be because if I see them I could probs tell you. Does 3300 sound right?

No 3300 is way too fast.

You need 800mhz in general for gaming, but 1066 is what you want.
It's cheap. I'm fairly sure yours isn't 800 or higher being only 1gb's and 512mb's

where? I just used that and looked under memory. Do I look at DRAM frequency? If so, it says 333.3 MHz. Is that right?
