Memory
915G Express chipset
DDR SYNCH DRAM NON-ECC MEMORY
It is not necessary to add memory in pairs. Memory upgrades are accomplished by adding single or multiple DIMMs of the same or
varied sizes. This chart does not represent all possible memory configurations. The Intel 915G Express chipset supports PC2-3200
(DDR2 400-MHz) non-ECC and DDR2 PC4200 (533-MHz) non-ECC memory.
For best performance, add in pairs, add in same channel, and do not mix speeds. For dual-channel performance, the total amount of
memory in each channel should be equal. If speeds are mixed, speed will default to the slowest DIMM.
MAXIMUM MEMORY (SLIM TOWER AND MICROTOWER)
Supports up to 4-GB of DDR2 SYNCH DRAM. Above 3-GB, all memory may not be available due to system resource requirements. Not all
memory configurations possible are represented below.

Keep the computer away from excessive moisture, direct moisture and the extremes of heat and cold, to ensure that unit is
operated within the specified operating range.
Leave a 10.2 cm (4 in) clearance on all vented sides of the computer to permit the required airflow.
Never restrict airflow into the computer by blocking any vents or air intakes.
Do not stack computers on top of each other or place computers so near each other that they are subject to each other's recirculated or preheated air.
Occasionally clean the air vents on the front, back, and any other vented side of the computer. Lint, dust and other foreign
matter can block the vents and limit the airflow.
If the computer is to be operated within a separate enclosure, intake and exhaust ventilation must be provided on the enclosure,
and the same operating guidelines listed above will still apply.

Graphics memory is shared with system memory. Graphics memory usage can
vary from 8-128 MB depending on the amount of system memory installed
and system load. 8 MB is pre-allocated for graphics use at system boot time.
Additional memory is allocated for graphics using Intel's Dynamic Video
Memory Technology (DVMT) to balance the optimum amount of memory
between graphics and other system use.
Memory < 256 MB: 8 MB pre-allocated (for DOS) + 24 MB DVMT : max frame
