I got a 3ghz hyperthreading pentium 4 from ebay. Its running vector great but with virtualbox running xp the system slows considerably.
This is most likely because the machine has only 512 megs of ram. I wanted to order some more memory but I am not sure what type this pc takes, its an intel desktop board...
The seller has not replied to my questions. I have not bought ram since I had like a pentium 1.5 ghz. Most of my other pcs are around that era (sad but true!) and all the ram for those is one type.
This pc must take a newer type, but I'm not sure which kind. The old kind looks the same size but won't fit.
Is there some way from the bios or someplace else I can tell what kind of ram to order? I'd like to load it up with 4 gigs, it has 4 slots for memory sticks...
Thanks for any help,
