  1. depends whether it is the 32 or 64 bit version of Win7. 32 bit version will only recognize a max of 3 gigs. Most likely only 2, 4, or 8 gig configurations are possible in your machine. So you will need the 64 bit Win7 to use the 4 or 8 gig configs. Correct me if I'm wrong folks.
  2. 64-bit i used a dvdwriteable and booted off disk no problem at all and im using two 1 gig 800mhz kingston sticks
  3. If you have open slots you can get 2 more 1 gig sticks or if not you could buy this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134641. I can't imagine any more than 4 gigs in an emachine.
