Yes the memory you have selected is supported, and yes you can also upgrade the processor to a dual core processor AMD Athlon 64 x2 (dual core) Just make sure its for the socket 939 but don't get too new of a cpu, the latests ones may not work.

    I need to buy memory for my computer its an emachines desktop model# T3410 512 MB DDR SDRAM and I dont know what to get


    in DDR ram there is some models like ddr and ddr2 and another new model is DDR3. First you check what is your ram related to. for that in some pcs bios option system information the details are there. For that at the time of booting before windows logo press the button whatever is showing to enter setup. and check otherwise remove your ram and take that to a computer shop and take a new ram with same model.

    And one more thing is you have to check your clock speed of your ram. Remove your ram from pc and check if any information is there on ram

    Upgrade of RAM


    184 pin DDR DIMM is the correct information :) The bus speed of the ram would range from PC 2100 - PC 3200. I assume the Max amount of ram will probably be 2gb though unless your motherboard specifies a higher amount.

    Ram issue with compaq presario 5000 G1 Series


    as you can see from the information below there are different requirements for RAM to work stable in your system . Most importand are the RAM VOLTAGE , SPEED , and Configuration of chips. you will need to consult the manual for qualified RAM requirements. Some RAM will work but not very stable. make sure the voltage supplied by your system is enough for the RAM. If you are running DDR RAM in dual channel mode, the ram needs to be the same size also. DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
    • The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
    • DDR memory requires a 184-pin slot and 1.8 operating voltage.
    • DDR2 memory is not compatible with DDR1 memory and requires a 240-pin slot and 2.5 operating voltage.
    • Synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM): Only use DDR type SDRAM memory if the computer came with DDR-SDRAM.
    • SO-DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
      • The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
      • SO-DIMM memory requires a 200-pin slot.
      • DDR2 SO-DIMMs are not compatible with DDR1 DIMM and DDR2 DIMM memory modules.
      • With a computer running at a system bus of 533 MHz or 667 MHz, use a PC2-4200 (DDR2 DIMM 533) type.
      • The following requirements must be met for the DDR memory to function in dual channel mode:
        • Same density (256MB, 512MB, etc.)
        • Same DRAM chip technology (x8 or x16)
        • All either single-sided or dual-sided
        • Matched in both Channel A and Channel B memory channels

    Memory


    Hello.
    Of course it would be a great improvement, but unfortunatelly you can't install DDR2 in DDR slots, they are different and even if you could make it fit they have a big difference in architecture.
    i'm sorry, it wont work.
