A question about adding ram to an old system

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was wanting to know, I have an old system that uses ddr2 667 ram, and it only has 4 gigs in it, and when it used on a game it keeps telling me that the ram is low and to close down the game. And then the mouse and/keyboard will stop working until some memory frees up, they are wireless. Well, I was going through some old pc part boxes I have, and found 2x1g ddr2 667 ram, can I put them into the other slots, where its like 2/1/2/1 gig ram? will that make it run off? and does it matter much if its made by the same company?


Just trying to make this computer make it for a couple more months, because I will not be able to build another until then.

Thanks for the help.
