But it seems like you want to replace the 512 MB RAM stick with the 1 GB RAM stick. If this is the case, by all means, go for it.

Sorry for the confusion.
Yes. I will remove the 512mb stick and put in the 1GB stick. There are some on ebay that are around $10 with free shipping. Do you have any experience with those or recommendations?

What do you mean? Changing RAM sticks?

Yes, I want to replace my current 512MB stick with an ebay 1GB RAM stick. Are those reliable? They say life time warranty.

If I were you I'd max the ram out to 2GB which is the maximum amount for your machine Computer memory upgrades for Dell Dimension E310 Desktop/PC from Crucial.com

Like all goods there is the occasional faulty product, but in general RAM sticks are pretty safe to purchase on-line and/or change yourself.

(BTW, I agree with BK, if you can upgrade to 2 GB, you should.)

THanks. I was considering using 2GB, but I wanted to test with 1GB stick and if it worked fine, then I would add another.

Keep in mind that 2 GB 1 is better than 1 GB 2. You really want to keep it simple and avoid mix and match to the best of your ability with RAM.

No, I think I'd prefer 2 X 1GB RAM. But if I just buy 1GB @ 533mhz and inserted with my existing 512MB @ 533mhz RAM, I would have 1.5 GB RAM. That will work right?

But both RAM sticks would be 533mhz: 1GB + 512MB = 1.5GB RAM @ 533mhz. Why wouldn't that work?
