As to what type you need, depends on your FSB and mobo.

I'd say that max ram for an AMD is 1024, and 2048 for Intel. There are a few posts in here that describe what frequency you need for what FSB speeds.

Those are definitely not the maximums of either AMD or Intel. It depends completely on the chipset, motherboard, processor, etc.

Also to find out what RAM your motherboard supports you could run 3DMark 2003. That tells you all the system information including what RAM you need.

should tell you what your board is, then go to the manufacture and should know from there what RAM your system supports :)
