Well thats american "pounds". English Pounds would be about 39-56 pounds. I don't know which site to use in the UK for cheap parts. Over here in the states we go to www.pricewatch.com, i beleive there is a UK sister site.

512 DDR is gonna be about $150 unless you get a REALLY good deal or a mail in rebate or something......and BTW in regards to the first post, more ram never hurts and if your going to get a new CPU go to a trade show or swapmeet where u can get a mainboard, cpu and ram in a package and it will cost half as much as ordering them all seperate.......second having 512 DDR ram is equal to having 1024 simm,dimm,or rimm ram....DDR = double data rate, meaning that the ram is cycles twice per clock rotation whereas others only once.....3rd, you can make a 1.8 run faster than 2.8 if u have more ram and a faster HD (10000 rpm as opposed to 7200 for example) the more ram u have the more data can be stored in easy acces for the cpu instead of the cpu having to search the HD for it......also there should be a jumper on your main board where you can max out your front side bus speed....look at your MB manual, doing this opens up the bottle neck of the bus a lil bit to let more info flow through it.....

try www.overclockers.co.uk ot ebuyer.co.uk if your in the uk, make sure you find out which type of ram you have already (eg, pc2700 DDR333, Pc3200 DDR400 ect) first to avoid any problems when buying new stuff.

ALways buy brand name Memory it is really important because about 25% of generic memory cause false boot ups and can crash your computer when run for long lengths of time.

Yes, for you purposes I would upgrade to 1024 mb RAM, maybe more. Otherwise you could stand to get an all new system if you want to think more about the future. :uhm:

If you use Ctrl-alt-del to see your memory, IT IS WRONG. Get something like ram cleaner and you will see how much you really have. www.download.com search there.
