    We need specs of your pc. Well at least the motherboard, make and model.

    You can download Everest Home Edition and it will tell you more than you'll ever need to know about your pc :)

    I thought Everest Home Edition was discontinued a year ago, now you have to buy it? You could try cpu-z it's still free. Or you could open the side of your case and try to read the mobo name and model number off it, if you can find it. (they like to bury it in the most awkward places).

    Just go to www.crucial.com and use their scanner to find out what ram you have, how much your mobo will take, and what speeds of ram it can use.

    Really I'm not going insane, I swear you could search the forums here and see a post of mine a year ago about Everest home edition. I'm not disbelieving you Rik :) I'm just saying I'm not insane! LOL. I guess they reversed their decision.

    You are both right... Everest Home Edition is still free- if you can find it (rather easy)- but hasn't been updated for a couple of years and is unsupported by the author as the current Everest products are for charge.
