That will work, but it would better to get the same stick e-machines use(which is next to impossible to find out) or get a 1gb matching set for as low as $90. Still that ram will work in your computer.

If you are interested in beefing up the emachine, then I would highly suggest going to http://www.emachineupgraders.info/ for help! Anything you ever wanted to know about upgrading an emachine can be found in the forums there! I also have an emachine (etower 667IR) and the help from those guys turned my hum-drum PC into a kick-ass gaming computer!

well i bought some more ram, not the one i posted, but i think there might be a problem. My computer seems much faster, but when i play games i see little or no improvement. My old ram was a samsung 2700 and my new one is a patriot 3200. Is there something i dont know?

An emachine is a PC like Dell, Compaq, or any other PC. emachines were made at first to be a "low cost" home computer, but more modern ones are much better made. Dank............. You now have more RAM, which will improve PC performance, but what kind of video card do you have installed? Do you even have a video card and using regular "onboard graphics"? Most of your gaming performance has to do with video graphics. The system you have "T2892" has decent onboard graphics, but nothing compared to installing a video card to improve gaming. From what I know about your system, T2892 has GeForce MX integrated graphics which is ok, but serious gamers need better video. I am guessing you have a "stock" computer that has had nothing added but the RAM so far?

well actually i bought a graphics card for it like a year ago, and since i knew, and know nothing about it i bought some card that is like marginally better. Its a fx5200 256mb, and the box said something about it being like 10% faster than a normal 5200. It was pretty expensive too, like almost 200!roll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif
