Default Memory

Im upgrading to 1gig of memory on my motherboard and i have a 512mb memory stick. Can i just put any other 512mb to make 1gig or do i need to buy the same exact 512mb card that i have on the motherboard?

you just want to make sure you use the same speed Ram. ie pc3200 Your ram will only run as fast as your slowest chip.

Yes another 512mb ram will make it 1gb. Which one are you planning on buying?

This should match, as they're both the same speeds:

or
