256mb would be an improvemnt, 512 at the minimum. My computer has a gig and a half of ram, which works quite nicely

What type of motherboard do you have? Any idea?

And also how much would it cost to ship something small from the states to you? I'm not thinking TOO much. Worst case I could buy some ram here cheap and ship it to you, if we're sure it'd work.... haha
