My mom's computer is painfully slow, and i wanted to upgrade it by getting her some new ram sticks for her birthday present. I think i generally understand the ram basics, but I can't seem to figure out what type of memory I need. Here are the computer specs really quick: OS: XP home edition Manufacturer: Dell System Model: Dimension 3000 BIOS: Pheonix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A02 Processor: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz Memory: 510MB RAM Page File:648MB used, 599MB available Made in 2003
Could someone tell me what type of ram i need from that info? if not, tell me what else i need to include. Thanks!

Google "dimension 3000 ram upgrade". It takes PC2700 or PC3200 and the maximum is 2 GB. You should install 2 x 512 MB or 2 x 1 GB modules.
thanks, but aren't there a few types of pc2700/3200 ram? ddr, ddr2 etc?
