i dont know much about ram other than i need more of it.

i have 256 now and i need more for some games i need 512

1.) if i get 256 ram does that add on to my current ammouint or do i have to get a 512 stick and install that?

2.) what brand is good

3.) is it easy to install

U can get a 256MB stick and ad it to your existing RAM = 512MB.
Crucial, Kingston are really decent, and not usually much more than
some of the lesser known, less trusted brands.
Yes, very very easy. Have the machine off, ground yourself (hold onto bare metal on the case while its plugged in) unplug, and install. thats it.

ok now i need to know what kind to get

i have a dell dimension 4600what other information do i need to know in order to buy?

Of what I know about the Dell Dimension 4600, it supports PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC). Just get either of the two types and it should work.
