When upgrading your ram, keep in mind one thing - the computer only has 2 memory slots.

You said you currently have 1Gb of ram and I presume it's split into a pair of 512Mb memory sticks installed in 2 memory slots. So, when you want to upgrade your memory, you have to replace these, since you can't just add on another 1Gb stick and have 2Gb in total - the computer only has 2 slots available.

I'm not so sure about using 3Gb of ram, I would prefer using either 2x1Gb or 2x2Gb ... but then ddr2 might not support dual channel (can any1 confirm this?) so using 2+1Gb might work for you

Hopefully I am making some sense to you :-)
