IBM Netvista 8305-m42 memory upgrade

by Majere26 - 2/27/08 10:41 PM

I have an IBM Netvista 8305-m42 with 512mb 184 pin ddr memory, 2.4 pentium 4 processor and an oudated agp nvidia Ti card. i was thinking of trying to upgrade to a Radeon X1050 256MB 128-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card, and the max 2gb ddr 184 pin memory. The system currently runs well with windows xp sp2 home edition. hus far, i have swapped an old hard drive as a secondry drive (for old files and such) and an additional dvd/cd-r drive which it handled quite well. I had to rig an externally mounted 600 watt psu to the case, and all in all the system runs great for trivial tasks and even handles an online mmo-rpg game well, bu slow and laggy. Is here any special types or brands of memory that needs to be insalled or any particular complications tha anyone can think of i may run into with this install? any help and advice is appreciated.
