I aminterested in getting Windows Cista in a couple of weeks and want to beef up my computer before I do. I purchased a DELL model E510 back in late October/early November. I have 512mB of RAM when I go to set-up when the computer starts up it shows I have (2) 256mB sticks for a totalof 512mB. i want to get atleast a gig in there so can I simply just purchase a 512 stick or does all the memory have to match i.e. (4) 256 sticks to equal 1 gig? This is what is cuurently on my computer and this is what I want to buy from NewEgg.

Thanks I will give it a try when I get home. Any idea how to upgrade my video card as well. I have a 128mB ATI card now. I amjust trying to avoid buying from DLL since they are so much more money.

Thanks,

Travis

You mean your thinking of upgrading your Video card to 256mb or similar?
