    You can view this information by downloading CPU-Z

    1. Once downloaded to your desktop double click the "CPU-Z" icon,

    2. It should now load and display a number of tabs, Select "Mainboard"

    You should see all the details of your motherboard you will need in order to upgrade

    Regards

    Well you can easily upgrade your memory which is good, the only problem being that upgrading the motherboard is slightly more time consuming as it is only advised to use matched sets,

    A matched set of two 512, 1024 or 2048 modules, or
    A matched set of four 512, 1024 or 2048 modules

    By doing this it means that you are making sure they will work together without issues occurring, If you don't match your upgrade sets you run the risk of damaging your computer and equipment.

    Here is a list of matched and Asus Tested modules that should work => Qualified Vendors List (QVL)

    However any big motherboard/memory manufacturer will have a compatibility tester which will refer you to a product of theirs that will work with your computer but it simply wont be Asus tested Smile

    Hope this information helps out

    regards
