Your motherboard can support up to 8 Gb of ram, of type DDR2 667 MHz or 800 MHz. In practice 667 would do I believe as the performance difference is not great in practice. The board has 2 DIMM sockets for this.
It depends somewhat on your OS and what you want to do. I'd try 4 Gb first. Bear in mind that added ram doesn't actually speed the computer as such, only a faster CPU does that, but it will allow more windows to be kept open, and cut down on data swapping to virual memory on the hard drive.
RAM will not increase the speed of your computer. The processor on the motherboard provides a given speed, such a 3 GHz or whatever. It is possible, however, that you need more RAM if you run too many programs or are playing games that need lots of RAM. Go to your manufacturer's website and look up the specs - it should tell you how much total RAM your motherboard will support as well as which type. Go to control panel, then to system. How much ram you have will be listed there. Once you have this information, you can decide if you want to buy more. I have found it is usually best to get RAM all at the same time, from the same place.
This board is also known as K8MM-V.
If you go here: Support For K8MM
Then you will find four tabs toward the bottom of the page, the second of which says Drivers. Clicking on this will give you a box further down which is a drop down menu to select your Operating System. Once you have done this there will be a list of all the drivers for this board and you can download whichever ones you want. You should note that this is quite an old board and it does not appear to support any OS above Vista 64bit as there are no drivers for Windows 7 or higher. Also with only 2Gb RAM maximum supported (according to the manual) I doubt its capability to run Win 7 or higher.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Please select your windows system, click on zip file for download. Unzip the file when downloaded, before you install the driver. Not all windows system is supported, such as windows 7. Other drivers can be downloaded here: http://www.viaarena.com/drivers.aspx By selecting your windows system.
its a case of purchasing the new ram modules taking the old ram out and popping the new ram in
i wud recommend using OCZ, GEIL or Crucial memory modules as these are the best makes
the spped of the ram varies from system to system depending on the system bus speed the most common speeds for this board is pc2100, pc2700 and pc3200 these speeds are as follows pc2100 - ddr200 pc2700 - ddr333 and pc3200 - ddr400
I've tried to find your driver but without results.. :/
better try some professional tool like this one: Driver Update Software for XP Vista 7 8
used it many times, and it's awesome.
wish you best of luck
