Hello,

I'm trying to upgrade the memory on my work computer and I'm not sure which kind or how much I should get. here is my motherboard

Right now there is 1GB in the left most purple slot. Do I just need something to put in the other purple slot? If so, then what about the blue ones? Can they all be used together?

Thanks so much, I appreciate it!

You can maximum have 2GB either DDR2 the purple slot or DDR the blue slots. It is either or. If you already have 1GB in a purple slot then you need a 1GB stick of DDR2 ram to reach the max. Your board only supports DDR2 533MHz so one of these would do http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Kingston is a very reliable brand. I would go with them before some of the more "exotic" brands available.

It is not a problem in most cases although it is recommended to match ram if possible.
