    Thanks for the reply
    It isa a hp pavilion a720a desktop and max supported is 1gb what it has now but cant afford to upgrade to newer system but need it to have more memory so did not know if you could put a boarded memory in a slot or something to help older systems m/b this is 9/04 dated system asus a7v8z-la, uses pc2700 mb/sec ram
  3. Nope it's not going to support anything more than 1GB.
    But that mobo according to HP supports upto 2 GB max.

    So what you can do is certainly buy 2x 1GB sticks of the RAM specified there and upgrade it.

    You can also lay your hands on a cheap AGP old GeForce4 GPU and make the max out of that system for quiet some time if you want to hang on to it and still be in good shape.
