Hi,

I want to install more memory onto my computer, to improve games etc (becasue hitman keeps crashing while im playing).
I currently have 512 mb and i was thinking of getting 1 gb, i know my current one is PC 3200 so i need the same type. however i have been told that i need to consider my motherboard, is this the case?
(my mother board is Pheonix - awardBIOS v6.00PG)

If i buy pc3200 1 gb memory will it work in my computer?

id appreciate any help, thank you

rem.
