I think that chipset is only compatible with Pentium Ms. Bluescreendeath a b à CPUs May 4, 2009 4:44:12 PM How much would RAM help? I currently have 2x256mb (2 slots total) for 512mb. If I replaced one 256mb with a 512mb, (for a total of 768mb), would that improve performance? I'll check the chipset as well Can't find your answer ? Ask !
