Default Ram check??

Im helping my friend out upgrading his rig and i know his processor but i need to know if his ram is ddr or ddr2 can i check this on windows or do i need a program? Im not sure what it will be since his board is a agp with no pci-e slots on it im thinking ddr.

Also what socket is a Amd athlon XP 3200+?

It's DDR ram. That processor is Socket A, so it's really old.

I don't think there is any socket A motherboard that has a PCI-e slot, because it's so old.

**** hmm he might have to wait. I told him he could get a 7800GT agp card and its pretty good but they are kinda expensive. How is a 7600GT agp? He is running a 5200 agp now lol

It's a heck of alot better than a 5200. It will play most games I guess.
