Re: memory upgrade

I strongly advise you purchase the DIMMs from Crucial directly*. You can buy other brands if you want -- YMMV -- but avoid Corsair.

You will need to weigh the costs of upgrading the system from a DDR2-based motherboard (to a DDR3-based motherboard) vs. paying for DDR2 RAM. Right now DDR2 is expensive (and for absolutely no justified reason whatsoever -- it doesn't cost more or less to manufacturer compared to 6 years ago), so be prepared to see prices much higher than DDR3.

* - Edit: Crucial is the customer/retail-facing division of Micron (the DRAM manufacturer).
