Default RAM upgrades

I'm sitting down to buy a 512 stick of DDR ram. What else do I need to know going into this before I just buy some RAM?

this will tell you what kind of ram you need, how much your computer can handle, and gives you the option to buy some sticks from crucial.

I checked there after reading some posts on the forum but it couldn't detect what I needed since I'm using a custom built machine.

The crucial website also has a catalogue of the different manufacturers and models to help you figure out what your system is.

If you want to give me what your pc model is and what company it is I can do it for you and let you know what kind of memory you need.

Also make sure you have enough available memory slots to add more memory.

Good Luck!

Okay,

If you give me your motherboard manufacturer and product ID I can help you out. When I say product ID I mean for example,
Asus _______ <--- fill in the blank.
