If you want 1GB , Especially if your motherboard supports Dual Channel Memory capability, then you will want 2 512mb sticks.

However, I seen in some instances that purchasing a 1GB stick is cheaper then purchasing 2 512mb sticks depending on where you shop.

Try looking around on Newegg (personal favorite for shopping computer gear) or other places and see the various prices.

Another thing, to determine the ram you have in your system , I reccomend a few utilities to familiarize yourself with your computer.

One of them is called Belarc Advisor, and the other is SISoft Sandra which will identify your motherboard and tell you the memory type and timings so you can write down this information to take to the store you are shopping at so you do not get the wrong kind of memory by mistake.

I'm finally found my system info can some tell me how much memory Im running on 512.00mb ? :(


you have a 512 mb card in the ram slot which gives you an effective ram of around 480 mb
it is random memory and is a storage space which the cpu uses to move data around while it does it's job
if you want to increase the ram then there should be a spare ram card slot next to the one you have so you can install another ram card of exactly the same value to double the ram memory
in some instances ( like game playing ) it can increase the speed of the computer

Can i install graphic card on Acer Aspire 5738Z??


No because the graphics card/chip is built-in on the motherboard. The graphics card uses shared RAM and you maybe able to increase the amount of video RAM in the BIOS setting but this will reduce the main RAM by the same amount.

It is impossible to increase the performance of a built-in video card except increasing the video RAM. The more RAM you add the less main RAM will be allocated to the main memory. The reason is the video card uses Shared RAM.
To increase the video RAM go into the BIOS setup - video display - memory allocation.
The best way to improve is to install a video card in the AGP expansion slot, you may need to disable the on-board video in the BIOS.

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).

I want to upgrade my graphics card for my laptop whats the best one to get


Hi, how are you?

Laptop do not use graphics card. The usually have the graphic chip integrated into their motherboards.

There are laptops designed for gaming. Alien Laptops or Asus Laptops are few of them.

So, upgrade to graphics card for laptops... hard.

You can increase performance by upgrading memory.

God Bless You!!!

Hope it helps.

Is their a special make of memory card, ie: ddr


According to: http://www.shopping.com/xPF-VIA-MB-FOXCONN-VIA-KM400A-400M01-G-6L-R

this motherboard has 2 slots for DDR (184pin) RAM,
and supports a maximum of 1GB of RAM per slot.

Note that DDR RAM comes in 3 speeds: DDR266 (slowest), DDR333, and DDR400 (fastest).

Buy the fastest RAM -- if the motherboard cannot run the RAM at "full" speed, the RAM will automatically slow itself down to a speed that the motherboard will support.

Normally 512MB is a good configuration of Ram to work with Windows Xp Sp2 but you have clean your temporary files frequently

Increasing RAM will not give you much speed difference because first you have study the Motherboard Bus speed and the cache memory - Actual speed increase from those things and the compatibilty.

Changing Ram you have to determine what type of ram and its bus speed whether its a SD Ram or DDR1 or 2 I hope now days SD ram cost more because its outdated and DDR1 is also bit costly than DDR2.
