Hi,

I have a old PC Pentium 3 and 128 MB RAM.Will i be able to replace the 128 MB with 1GB ?

Actually, I guess mine is SDR ram which has two points in the connector?

Thanks

We can't help you unless you give us the make and model of your motherboard.

at least tell us how many ram slots there are. also bear in mind that you will most likely have more success if you make sure you use ram sticks that have 16 chips on each (8 on each side of each stick). as there is less mb in each chip compared to a stick with less chips on.

I think that PIII can only support 256mb chips and have 2 slots, so 512mb would be the limit.

"I think that PIII can only support 256mb chips and have 2 slots, so 512mb would be the limit."

The P3's L2 can cache up to 64GB of memory. It's the motherboard that determines how much memory may be installed, and in what configuration.

The common i810/815 chipsets only support up to 512MB. The older i440BX on a board with 4 slots will support up to 1GB (256x4 low density). Newer VIA Pentium III chipsets support up to 2GB (512x4 SDRAM) or 4GB (1GBx4 DDR SDRAM).

The HTPC:
Pentium M oc'ed to 2.82GHz, 667FSB, 2MB L2
3GB of DDR-800 @ 667MHz
GeForce 9600GT
Blu-Ray
Vista
Modified PowerMac G4 'Quicksilver' case
HDMI to homebuilt 1080p projector
