  1. You won't notice a difference by upgrading just the ram. I recommend you upgrade the cpu instead. Look for a used one in one of the hardware forums or on craigslist. Also check your asus board "cpu support" section first to see what the board supports. If your board won't support the e series or q series core2 duos or quads, then a motherboard change with the cpu will be required for any real performance gain.
  2. motherboard only supports 2gig ram

    thanks for the help might look at just getting a new setup and seeing what i get for this one
  4. Frys has a sempron 140 with ddr2 msi board for $29.99 after rebate. I sold that board to someone yesterday for $30. Bet he's kicking himself today. I use a biostar g41 board and it works fine, even overclocking.
  5. No. I have too many frys combos. Got the core i3 530 with biostar board for $99.99 after rebate yesterday. It's plenty fast even with just 2 gigs of ram.
  6. It's in stores only. Last week they had one combo on their website, but it sold out at the warehouse before it did in some of the stores. You need to petition frys for a store in your location.
