Default RAM for Dell Desktop.

I want to buy some new ram for this computer. I've pasted the details from the order form below.

N241018 - Dell Dimension(TM) 3100 Pentium(R)4 541 w/HT Desktop

Dimension(TM) 3100 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 Processor 541 with HT Technology

(3.2GHz, 1MB L2 cache, 800MHz FSB)

I currently contains:

512MB (2X256MB) NECC Dual Channel DDR2 533MHz SDRAM Memory

1 - Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade this to 1 Gig. Can the computer take it?

2 - Can I use other brands of ram for this Dell computer or must I use this exact one?

Thanks

You can use the system scanner tool on crucial.com to find out how much and what type of memory your computer can use.
