How do I check what speed my Memory is?

My computer is currently a little over 2 years old; 2.0 GHz and 512 Mb ram, but I want to upgrade the ram. I tried looking at the system information and that didn't tell me anything. I could just open up the box, but I don't feel like doing that because my RAM is hidden under a few of the drives so to get to it I would have to take half the computer apart and I don't know the FSB speed.

Can anyone help me out, thanks.

Or do I just have to open it up to figure out?

Dont you think that at some point your gonna have to open it up? Afterall if you want to add more RAM your gonna have to anyway, so it would be best to go ahead and do it now. Take your old RAM to the store to make sure you get exactly what you need.

considering if there is a program out that will tell me exactly what bus speed my comupter ram runs and there isn't a million types of ram like there was in the old days, why on god's green earth would I want to take my box apart when I just told you that I have to take half the friggin' thing apart. What if the store is out of the memory I need, then I just spent time taking apart my computer and having a greater chance of possibly screwing something up. Efficiency, it's good.

Like exlude says Lavalys Everest Home Edition is a pretty good program and will give you the info you need. Your still gonna have to take it apart.
