I need to expand the Ram. My inspiron 530 has 2 Gb ram and this is not enough for Photoshopping activities. I want to buy 2 x 1Gb extensions for the ram, but to succeed I must had two additional free slots.

Please inform me what tot do

Do you only have one free slot? Does the system have 2 or 4 total slots?

If you only have one free slot then your only option is to buy a 2GB stick. Why are you against this? Why do you only want to buy 2 1GB sticks?

According to the spec sheet on the inspirion 530 it has 4 slots and comes with 2 slots filled with a set of 2 - 1Gb. DDR2-667 modules so you should have 2 empty slots that you could fill with 2 more 1Gb. DDR2-667 modules to give you 4 gb. (though if you have a 32 bit OS only 3.25 gb. or so will be useable)

So any of these should work !
