    I currently have 1 gig RAM and would like to upgrade substantially. Can anyone tell me (1) can my system be upgraded and if so (2) do I need to take it in to a tech shop? Thank you!

    Thanks guys! The recommended upgrade is a DDR2 - 667 mhz but I see that there are some 800 mhz out there for similar prices. Do I get the benefit of the faster memory or is it wasted due to other system limitations?

    If the system can only support 667Mhz then 800Mhz would only run at that speed.
