    Welcome to TechSpot

    Go ahead and buy that extra stick. Make sure it is of exactly the same type and preferably of the same manufacturer. Use an antistatic wristband or earth yourself before you put it in (press down properly).

    Thanks alot man, i think my computer might run a lil much better, yea i see it has the pc2700 ddr sdram , and the brand name is buffalo, im looking at some websites, looks like they never heard of this crap before, must be some ebay stuff lol,

    They got a special deal on ultra , idk if i should go for that or premium or maybe k-byte any ideas?
