I'm looking to upgrate my pc with either 512 or a gig of ram
First of all how do i go about finding out what kind of ram i already have(preferably without opening the case as i've never done so myself) ?
The new ram has to be compatible with the old stuff, right? (general info on ram would be appriciated)
Once i've got it, how easy is it to install myself?
I'm also planning to buy a new computer within a year or so, would it be possible to yank 'this' new ram back out and add it to the new comp, assuming compatibility?
Edit: i've also got an old 1ghz comp, would taking the ram out and sticking it into my current machine be an option?
