>> Re: Best upgrade help
First off, i almost consider your post to be spam.
There is really no reason to post that much useless information, rather post a link to the specs, or just the important information.
Posting as you did will make people think, "why waste my time answering if he doesn't care enough to post a proper question".
Please edit your post!

2nd it is very difficult to understand what you are asking.
Are you asking what speed of memory or how much memory your laptop will handle?

Here is a link to your system specs:
http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Aspire572...Zsp2.shtml

Quote from site:
RAM / Max RAM Up to 2 GB of DDR2 533 MHz memory, upgradeable to
2 GB using two soDIMM modules (dual-channel support)

Answer:
So it looks like your laptop will handle a total of 2 gigs or two 1gig sticks of 533 memory.
Here is a link to a set on Newegg (i know you are not from the USA, this is an example)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134687

It could be language issue...

But even from the data provided in the original post,
Computer Memory Controller
Location : Mainboard
Error Correction Capability : None
Number of Memory Slots : 2
Maximum Installable Memory : 2GB
BANK 0 - DIMM0 : Samsung 0x4D342037305436353534455A332D43453620 0x040AA7AA Unknown DIMM Synchronous DDR2 512MB/64 @ 533MHz
BANK 2 - DIMM2 : Hynix (Hyundai) 0x48594D503136345336344350362D59352020 0x00007140 Unknown DIMM Synchronous DDR2 512MB/64 @ 533MHz


We see he has 1GB installed (2x512MB@533MHz). The very best he could do is to replace each
512MB 533MHz memory stick
with
1GB 533MHz memory stick
and run in "dual-channel" mode (which this computer does support)

for a total of 2GB (2x1GB@533MHz)

I could not tell with 100% certainty from the provided info or the specs page pointed to by micro if the computer supports a single 2GB 533MHz stick of RAM. The specification's phrase "...upgradeable to 2 GB using two soDIMM modules..." STRONGLY suggests the maximum size of any single memory stick is 1GB...but even so, he should get better performance running in dual-channel mode wtih 2x1GB memory modules.


edit to add:
Oh, and Issen Na...you can buy memory modules that are faster than 533MHz and they should work, but they will NOT run faster than 533MHz, but will likely cost you more money.

Note: while increasing your computer from 1GB of total RAM to 2GB total RAM will help your computer run incrementally faster, it MAY not make much user-noticeable difference, and MAY be disappointing to you. It MAY not be worth the money you spend. It depends on what operating system you use and what applications you use, what you use them for, and how many you use at any given time.

I have a Dell dimension 8200. Intel pentium4 cpu 1.8 ghz w/ 512 mb rdram. Which would be the better upgrade option? 1)2x256 (for $30) or 2)2x512 (for $130) memory upgrade

Thanks,

2x512 is the only thing that will even give you a somewhat noticeable difference. I'd say save your 130 bucks and just invest into a new laptop. You can get cheap ones for 300 bucks and those will still be a lot faster than any upgrade you can do to your current system.
