  1. Will the Kingston DDR2 1GB PC4200 Speed 533MHz ram work with my computer, and will it help. I have a dell dimension e310 with 256 mb of ram. Im trying to play guild wars on my computer. I also need a better video card. Will this memory help my computer go faster thanks?

    It should work. You would only need to get pc3200 ddr2 ram though. If pc3200 ddr2 is cheaper, you could get it instead.
    According to dell,

    you can use either ddr 400(pc3200), or ddr533 (pc4200) ddr2 ram.

    I'm afraid you have very limited video upgradeability, as in you can only use a pci or pci-e x1 card. Here's the best I can find.(out of stock atm)

    Ram will help if the game uses more ram than you have, which is likely the case. The integrated video will likely hold you back though.
