    your motherboard only supports ddr2 (if you put down the right motherboard) but as long as you don't go 2 crazy any ddr2 should work.
    Hear is a link to a pretty decent set of ddr2's

    4gb kits(2x2) should work just fine (1 kit on a 32 bit system or 2 on a 64 bit system)
    keep in mind you can only go up to 8gb at 800mhz on a 64bit and 4gb at 800mhz on a 32 bit)
    click here and then click the memory section to see where i got my info

  3. so theres no way i can run a DDR3 card even if it runs off its own memory and not my computers?
  4. as by graphics cards you would get gddr5 memory built in if it has its own memory and as long as your psu can handle a big graphics card, any card should work, but most likely you will need at least a 500 watt psu, perferably 600 watt just so you dont stress it.

    hope i could help
  5. very helpful indeed thank you.
