Most ram sticks will have a sticker with identifying information. That should be enough for someone to match it up.

Even better, you can also go to someplace like and enter your motherboard information. There they can tell you how much and what capacities it will take.

That info will probably also be on the motherboard manufacturer's support page for your model number.

You've been asking quite a few questions but never once have you listed your system specs. So how about it?

CPU = ?
motherboard = ?
memory = ?
video = ?
hard drive = ?
power supply = ?

Or if you have an OEM system (Dell, eMachines, Gateway, HP, etc), just post the model number.

Your power supply has a label on it with manuacturer name, model number, and specifications for the +3.3v, +5v, and +12v rails (circuits).

Cheapo power supplies can cause a multitude of problems.

Nothing is more important than your power supply.

"ok well i cant be bothered pulling my pc apart right now"

It would take about 30 seconds to remove the side panel & get the info off the side of the power supply. You must be a very busy boy. You'll be even busier if the power supply blows & takes out the board, CPU, etc along with it.

"in a months time i am buying 2gb's more ram"

If you have the 32-bit version of Vista, all it can use is roughly 3GB. From the Asus website:

"When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended."

BTW, your graphics is the integrated Radeon X1250, not X1200.

cheers. and about the supply unit, my pc is a media pc so it lies down on its side. kinda like a dvd player if you know what i mean. so therefore the only part of my power supply i can is the top, which says "AntecDESIGN"

If you really want to know the info should still be there but you might have to take the power supply out of the case.
usually 4 screws holds it in place.
