    Hey everyone! My paw says you guys sure know your stuff:D !!! I've got a Gateway MX8711 laptop with an FSB of 533mhz. I would like to upgrade the memory. Already has 1GB in two slots (2X512). I want to purchase a 1GB for one slot and holdover a 512mb already installed. Totalling 1.5GB.
    The best I can make out, is that the memory already installed is DDR2 at 533MHz PC2-4200, 200p SODIMM. A local big box store has 1GB DDR II PC2-5300 (appears to be 667mhz) for $45.

    I've got 2 question areas:confused: . First:

    1. Can/Should I use the PC2-5300 in the laptop?
    2. If so, can I/should I mix it with the PC2-4200?

    I don't want to screw the computer up.

    Can I install the modules myself of go pro?

    Any help is really appreciated!!
