Well I apologize for all the questions...but I have a new set. Seeing as it would take more money than I have to build a new computer, I would like to try a slow upgrade which might eventually lead to a completely new computer altogether. I currently have 1 GB of RAM, and if I were to build a new computer I would go with 2 GB of RAM. So, since I want a new motherboard for a new processor, I need to get ram that is compatible with my ancient motherboard and any new one I get. I currently have motherboard. I have been looking at getting this
motherboard to replace my old one. It's the same size so it ought to fit in my case. The RAM I would like is the Patriot 2GB
, but I need to know if it's even compatible with my motherboard, and if so, if it's compatible with that other one I am looking at. From what I can tell it looks like it will be compatible with both motherboards, but I would like confirmation. Now after I get the RAM, I can work on getting a new motherboard and processor.
So the main question here is the RAM compatible with both motherboards? Also, would I be better off in the long run getting a bigger case so that I am not so constrained on size? I was looking at this
case for a possible candidate or perhaps this one
. To be honest I am not quite sure what to look for in a case or necessarily a motherboard. Anyhow, I hope I am not too much of a nuisance with these questions.
