OK Great and would newegg be the place to go for the ram? I have a microsoft certificate of authenticity sticker for XP on the back of this comp with the 25 digit key code....any chance I call microsoft and they send me a new disc? THis comp was from my brother and when he got it it wasnt working so he fresh installed the w2k onto it just to see if it worked and then i ended up with it. Now im looking to upgrade it across the board i guess.

Newegg is the perfect place for RAM. You can try to call them, I've heard they do give out free CDs.

Two sticks of this is your best bet. If they don't work, try em one by one. Return the defective one, if any, and buy a new one. Repeat, but you probaly will just get two working sticks, I'm just giving your the procedure.
