Hi guys

My PC is getting on a bit now and I want to give it a bit of a boost. I am going to upgrade the RAM. At present, I have one stick of 1GB Kingston, 512mhz DDR2. (KVR533D2N4/1G)

Prefebly, I would like to put a 2GB stick in (to make a total of 3GB), but I have read that it works in pairs so I need another the same, is this so? if so, I guess i should of had 2 in the first place.

Something odd i have found on my system is that SIW says that the RAM is 233MHZ?? odd as I know it is 512MHZ and that DDR2 doesnt come in that size.

My MOBO is a K9N Neo V1. MS-7260, will this be ok running Windows 7 as I am thinking of upgrading the OS to??

Thanks guys

Try downloading CPUz and looking at your current RAM Speed.

It looks like your board doesnt support dual channel so get whatsevere sticks you want but i wouldnt go over 800Mhz to be safe

Hi, thanks for reply. Already got ram now and just got the 1gb, it is dual channel. Downloaded CPU-Z, it says DRAM frequency 251.3MHZ.

Also is the SPD section of CPU-Z it says my RAM is in slot 1 and 3. This is not the case, they are in DIMM1 and DIMM 2.
