Hi guys

I want to run 3 leagues at the same time but I need more RAM for that…..

I want to upgrade my RAM. How do I check if its DDR or DDR2 or DDR3?

I ran the dxdiag command. It jus tells me how much ram I have not which type of ram I have?

How do I check which type of ram is compatible with my system???

Well if it is so crap that it can't even run 3 leagues, I doubt it is DDR2, and I'll almost guarantee it isn't DDR3, but I'm no expert :(

it can run 3 leagues but its a bit slow....

How much ram have you got anyway?

If its that slow on 3 leagues i'd throw it in the bin and start again. You need a new computer.

by the sounds of it, its probably a pentium 2 with 512mb ram

crucial.com has a memory checking application that can recognise which ram you need.

TBH it is the processor that probably needs improvement. It sounds like you have an old, crap PC.

Save your money for a new PC rather than waste money on RAM which will probably make very little difference.

That is an extremely poor amount of RAM if you cannot run three leagues.

I recently updated from 1GB of RAM to 2GB and I tell you, the difference is heavenly. So much smoother.

Pfft, i remember trying to run CM 99-00 on 64mb memory.

Saved up (something like £30) for a stick of 128mb and it flew along :D

This site is pretty helpful.
