Your boad uses "shared video" which means it dosen't have a seperate video card, it is built into the motherboard. By adding ram to the board you will be boosting the available amount of memory available to the system in general, which will give you a boost. I believe your board holds more ram than you currentlly have, but you won't see a huge difference. You would need a PCIE video card for that, and I saw one at comp usa geforce 8500 on sale for $35 yesterday which is half price, so that may be a better idea, good luck

Yes. You can go ahead and add 1024 more. But my advise is to really think if you really need that high configuration.

Increase graphics from 96 to 128

If you have insralled the correct video driver and you cannot increase the VIDEO RAM then it is not possible to increase the bit color from 96 bit to 126 or 256 bit color.
The only way to have a higher bit color is to install a new graphics card that supports up to 256 bit color (this video card will have large cideo RAM).

Transcend 160gb external harddisk shows 149gb as i connect it to computer

The reason why you see that difference is common to all hard drive manufacturers. They determine a GB to be 1000 MB, and 1 MB to be 1000 KB, so on...
However, computers define 1 KB to be 1024 B, 1 MB to be 1024 KB, and 1 GB to be 1024 MB- so there's a reduction right there of the capacity. Add to this the overhead for a file system- and that explains the variance you see

Epox ep-8kta3pro want to add ram procedure

That is the correct memory type, max of 1.5GB, and not the 2 you would expect. You can use 64/128/256/512 modules, but when using 512, only 3 are recognized, the 4th slot is disabled.

I can put 512 video only? So i cant 1024?

Yes you can go for a external graphics card to have 1024 MB of Video..but that will make your existing graphics card useless.
There is no way to upgrade the existing graphics card.

RAM cuantity

The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.
