Hello friends,

I need to upgrade my memory, how would I know what brand and make to buy? Right now it is 512k most of it used by Microsoft xp. :ermm:

Also for graphic card, would any of the ATI's do the work.

I will provide a link to bestbuy, they have some good ones, if you can tell me which one would do the job mostly for Hex, because of Open Gl 1.4 problems I have which currently is not supported on my card.

Most of the ATI cards do not say if they support 1.4:hi:

Any brand of RAM should work but you need to find out if you have SDRAM, DDR 1 or even DDR 2. The CPU and chipset should give you a clue.

Almost any Nvidia or ATI card over $100.00 should rock. You need to find out if you have AGP or PCI Express. I switched from a Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 to Geforce 7300 and it was like night and day for Carrara.

I hope this helps.

Thank you, If I take the old memory out, would it tell me the information on it?

My system is the IBM series 0, one of the ones that has all ibm everything.

How old is it and what CPU does it have? You could have RAMBUS RAM if it is an old P4.

It is to hard to tell. You could take your ram and video card out of the computer and then go to the computer store and look at their RAM and video cards to see what matches your system. That would be best way to check but make sure to put the RAM and video card in an antistatic bag.
