|Your Acer Aspire V8243 desktop is apparently an oddball model that was probably put out only by Acer India, which apparently no longer exists. No memory manufacturer or distributor I have tried lists Acer Aspire V8243 (or V anything) , nor does any still existing Acer web site I have looked at. |
What little I can find on the web indicates it came with 256mb of PC3200 ram that can be upgraded to a max 2gb of installed DDR ram - does it have two ram slots? - if so, that's a max 1gb PC3200 (800mhz) module per slot.

Acer has introduced on India Independence day a new entry-level desktop PC, the Aspire V8243, which is powered by Intel Pentium 4 processor (3.06 GHz) and comes with DVD/CD-RW combo drive.
acer-aspire-v8243-desktopPowered by Intel Pentium 4 Processor 524 having 1 MB L2 Cache, 3.06 GHz CPU speed, 533 MHz FSB, Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology, the new Acer Aspire V8243 desktop PC features 256-MB PC3200 DDR2 RAM (expandable up to 2.0 GB), a 80-GB Super ATA (7200rpm) hard disk drive, an integrated DVD/CD-R/W Combo Optical Drive and it comes with standard 17-inch (43.18 cm) CRT digital color monitor.
You could try capt's suggestion, or use a similar program on another memory manufacturer or distributor's web site, or better still, you could find the model number of the mboard inside the case, and use that to find the proper ram for your model. The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots. In this case, it may have an AOpen mboard.
If your computer still has it's original Acer software installation on it, there may already be an Acer User's or Owner's manual on your hard drive for your model, that has ram info in it.
