Hi, my PC has Samsung DDR-SDRAM PC2100 - 512MB, I want to double this. I don't know anything about this process so can someone who does please advise me: does the extra RAM I put in have to be the same (ie type and make). I believe that my RAM occupies DIMM #1 (don't know if that's relevant). My motherboard is MS 6579 (MicroStar) (again, not sure if this is relevant). Thankyou!!

Preferably it has to be the same make & type, although if you have no-name RAM now you can plug in any generic RAM starting from PC2100 and upwards.

I mean to say that you can even plug in PC3200 RAM if you want, it will just run at PC2100 speeds.

Just power down, open up your case, and plug in the memory in the next free bank. Close case, power up again and you should see 1 GB of memory.
