Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

How do I install a 2g stick of memory into gt5408 ? What nvidia video card can I use to upgrade from the Intel graghics card for around $100. ? Thanks in advance for your responses !


Answers :

Gateway GT5408/H has 4 slots for memory. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 or DDR2 PC2-6400 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. It will not support a 2GB stick.

ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT Eco 512MB cards are about that range and give you a good warranty as well.
