Hi, i plan to add new memory to my mobo. 512 SDRAM, but i am not sure whether my mobo support it or not. now i have 2 pieces 128 SDRAM, installing in my mobo.
1. Does my mobo can support it?
2. Which one should i buy? 16c or 8c or any? how many pins? 128 or?
3. Kingston or TwinMos better?
4. SDRAM DIMM or SDRAM SO DIMM in my case?
I m using Intel Pentium III 833 Mhz.
Thanks

1) what kind of motherboard do you have?
2) SDRAM only has 168 pins. if its anything more or less its not SDRAM (note: some companys call DDR ram DDR SDRAM, which is different than the ram you need)
3) Just make sure its not a no-name company. Crucial and Kingston are brands that personally know are pretty good. The name TwinMos sounds familiar, but i dont know anything about it.
4) SDRAM SO DIMM is for laptops. you want SDRAM DIMM's.

Every Pentium III motherboard I've dealt with that uses the Intel 810/815 chipset support up to 512 MB of memory, although if your motherboard has a different chipset (like VIA) then it might be different. If it's a brand name PC (like HP, Compaq, Dell, etc), then you can look up the model on Kingston's website and it will tell you various things, like the stock memory configuration and maximum amounts of memory.
