After doing some research, I found that you had an Intel motherboard and used a website called (Crucial is a brand of memory and have some useful tools on their website) These are the specs that came up. You can view the same information at this web address

It also shows the price of the upgrade! Hope you find what you are looking for!

  • 168-pin DIMM Banking: 3 (3 banks of 1)
  • Chipset: Intel 440BX
  • Error Detection Support: ECC and non-ECC
  • Graphics Support: AGP 2X
  • Max Component Density: 128Mb
  • Max Unbuffered SDR SDRAM: 384MB
  • Module Types Supported: Unbuffered only
  • SDR SDRAM Frequencies: PC66 and PC100
  • Supported DRAM Types: SDR SDRAM only
  • USB Support: 1.x Compliant
Q: Will my system recognize the maximum upgrade?
A: Possibly How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found at
Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: SDRAM memory with support for SDRAM, PC133 speeds. Because SDR memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible SDR speeds listed below.

Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 384MB.
Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.
Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No. No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.
Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
A: No. Your system does not support dual channel.

Q: Does my computer support ECC memory?
A: No. Your system does not support ECC. Because ECC and non-ECC modules should not be mixed within a system, install the same type of modules that are already in your system.

    Cant open the tower. i want to add ram. what is the max i can add?

    One way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

    This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.

    It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for that motherboard.

    If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.

    Changing FSB & Voltages

    Hi there.
    You can change the front side bus in the bios if the bios supports it, if it does be very careful not to overclock the processor to much as you can cause damage to the motherboard and blow the processor up, also bear in mind that cooling is very important when it comes to overclocking.

    Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

    Motherboard upgrade

    That computer uses a proprietary motherboard. Only that one or one from the same Gateway family will fit, and the power supply from an old PIII will not work with the newer systems. Don't waste your cash.
