Chapter 36. Upgrading Your PC's Memory > Installing Memory in Your PC

Installing Memory in Your PC

Before you can finalize your memory upgrade plan, you first must determine how much memory is currently installed in your PC.

Back in the days when you used SIMMs (Single Inline Memory Modules) in your PC, you had to be concerned with matching the SIMMs and installing them in pairs. That nonsense ended when PCs moved up to DIMMs. As long as you use the same type of DIMM in your PC, you can place a 16MB DIMM in the first slot, a 32MB DIMM in the second slot, and a 64MB DIMM in the third slot, and never give it a second thought.
