Default RAM Upgrade


I am wanting to upgrade some of my RAM but I am a little unsure whether my motherboard will take DDR or DDR2 and I don't wanna open it up right now to check.

System Manufacturer: Nvidia
Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00, 10/02/06

Please and thank you!

If it is a pre-built, giving us the make and model will allow us to look it up. If it is not, do you know what CPU you have (AMD/Intel, socket?)?
