Hi,
I have Dell dimenstion PC with 64 MB RAM. I need to increase the memory to 512 MB. But the configuration allows max of 384 MB. Is buying the new computer only the solution ?

Hi,
Yes. From what youve described Im assumming that you have an early Dell PII system like the Dell XPSD233 (I have one of these).
The amount of memory you can upgrade to is directly related to the Motherboard. If you want more than 384MB on your system, you'll have to buy a new motherboard.
Also note, that Dell PCs dont use standard PC connections, so you'll have to buy a new case and PSU. If building a PC from scratch breaks you out in a cold sweat, then Id suggest buying a new PC.
Cheers,
Mark
