    hi, i have a motherboard with 4 slots for ram sticks. right now i have two sticks of 512mb but i want to buy another 1GB stick. does it matter what brandname i get, or what kind? i'm not sure if there is only one kind of ram or different sizes or whatever. also 2 slots i have are blue and the other 2 are red. does that mean anything? like how much they can hold?
    Thank You

    i have an ASUS A8N-E motherboard

    they all need to be compatible and the same mfg makes it easier.

    check the mb mfg for what's the max and recommended use of the slots.
