which Ram to use



Hi, new to the forum and to upgrading PCs

After an online check,I have a Gigabyte 7VT600 motherboard. I want to increase my RAM to 1gb. I currently have 256mb.

It says I can only use DDR SDRAM then the checker said that I could use PC2700 PC3200 AND PC4000.

My questions are
whats the difference in numbers mean?

does DDR mean DDR1 and is RAM theb same as SDRAM

is it cheaper or better to buy a 1gb stick or buy 2x 512mb?

will my 256mb work alongside added Ram

what is the average price as I dont want to pay over the odds?

Many thanks

The more tech savy members of the board will want to know the make of your machine and OS to help you.

Welcome to the funhouse, BTW.
