Specs: Windows XP
I have an older P IV system with an Asus board. I wanted to upgrade the ram. It only had 1 x 512 chip of DDR 300 ram. I contacted my compter supplier and they said that they would sell me 1 GB of DDR400. Will this faster ram work or do I need to change the settings?

There is no DDR300. The three most common are DDR266, DDR333, DDR400.

DDR400 *should* be backwards compatible so if you currently have DDR333 & add a stick of DDR400, both sticks will run as DDR333. You could also get DDR333 to match what you have.

You might wanna enter your board model number into the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool to see what they advise. And if you're in the US, shop around online.

Here's a few possibilities:
