  1. Hello,
    I am looking to upgrade my memory and Im not quite sure what to get. I currently have 512mb (2 x 256) 184 pin DDR SDRAM PC3200. I assume that with dual channel RAM that you want the same speed and such, but what about capacity? Should I get 2 more 256's? or gan i go with 2 more 512's? They are set up like this: 1 2 3 4. Where 1 and 3 are taken with the two 256's and the sockets are blue. (2 and 4 are empty and have black sockets) What sould I do? Please help.
    thanks,
    greg

    Have a look on the Compaq website. You may be lucky enough to find it there.
