My computer is running an intel 845g chipset and I want to upgrade my ram, I found a really good deal for 512mb of ddr400 ram and want to know if i can run it on my chipset.

I'm not entirely sure, the computer is one of those generic warehouse $999.95 Dell's that a bought on a limited budget and quickly upgraded the graphics card.

Switch off the computer, pop the side off, rip out the stick of RAM, and see what is on it. If it says DDR400 or less you should be fine, as long as it says DDR.
