Looking to add more RAM to my compaq Pressario.
MB is MCP61PM-HM
Proccessor AMD Athlon 64x2 4600+
Currerntly has 1GB (2X 512)
would like to go to at least 2 GB.
Would adding a 1 gb card to the existing 2x 512 work?
Has 4 available slots. Will support 2 GB card. up to 4 Gb on 32 bit or 8 gb on 64 bit
Specs show
PC2 4200 533
PC2 5300 667
PC2 6400 800
all compatable

Where is best place to buy?(Can't afford to spend big bucks)
Anyone on here have compatable RAM they are prepared to sell to me.

Cheers
Colin

You can add another 1 Gb stick, but it may not run in dual channel mode then

There's a lot of places that sell DDR2 ram. Altho, some cost more than others

Thanks Speedy. Happy to buy 2 x 1GB if that is what it takes

PB tech sells some cheap ram, computerlounge.co.nz is another place to check. Just remember the GST increases are coming this friday, so move quick if you're really going on the cheap.
