Best kind of memory i can purchase for my m916 board

Im having a lot of trouble finding specific stats on this motherboard that will tell me compatible memory for it. Im currently running a 1gig kit ( 2 5xx). I'm ready to purchase some more memory and im hoping an extra gig will do the work. I see on website a whole lot of ddr2-800 pc2-6400 2gb kit. I really just want to know what numbers to look for before i start shopping. Thanks!

You will have to look for PC2100 (DDR266), PC2700 (DDR333), PC3200 (DDR400) memory, because DDR2 (and other types) are not supported. Only these 3 are supported.
This website lists memory for you motherboard, but I don't think it is the cheapest. Just have a look around. Every memory that's of the above types will work with your motherboard

Ram supported by asus motherbord p5p800-vm<green>

Memory should be same as the one that is in the motherboard . Each motherboard support only one type of memory. Search on the internet for the type of motherboard for memory supported with it. If it says other than DDR2/ DDR3 then the motherboard wouldn't support the memory. Do some searching like motherboaed p5p800 and see few websites for specification for the motherboard, check the memory specifically for the details.

Intel D102GGC2 Motherboard Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
Maximum Memory Capacity: 2048MB
* Currently Installed Memory: 512mb Number of Banks: 2
* Dual Channel Support: Yes
* CPU Manufacturer: GenuineIntel
* Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.
Your MotherBoard Supports up to 2GB of memory.

You have 512mb, you can add 512mb to the empty slot.
, however,It's a good idea to keep them the same if you can.
You can install memory that is: DDR2 PC2-5300 (PC2-5300 is 667Mhz) you can use 1gb memory in each module for best performance and matching pairs since your motherborad supports dual can use sound card and SATA hard disk for higher disk support

Sony motherboards

All motherboards are capable of failing. Sony's boards aren't any different.

My personal experience with Sony boards is that they're usually pretty stable compared to HP's DV series which are really problematic.

Sony's boards are usually a bit more expensive too depending on the model of course.

Let me know if you need any specifics or have any other questions.

Best of luck!
