RAM attachment

Hey guys I have Intel 845 GVSR Motherboard. In that for RAM its having 2 slots. Now both are full with 512MB modules each. If I want to extend it with other MODULE of RAM instead of replacing on board slots then how can I do it ? Means for extra USB slots we can have one extension card like that is it possible for RAM in anyway ?

Thank you for your answers in advance.

If you have 2 slots is no way to install more than 2 modules. Only you can change your 512 MB RAM modules with 2 1 GB RAM modules.

EXPERT thats right. But suppose I have 3 or 4 modules of 512 MB RAM and using 2 of them so slots are occupied. Now I do not want to use 1 GB single module. BUt I want to use other 512 MB slots. How can I do that ? Is it possible as like USB I have described above in question.

Any plug in card that you could buy wouldn't be able to address the full Bus Speed of the system so even if you could fit more RAM to some sort of PCI Card it wouldn't work at the correct speed and you would take a massive performance hit as well.

The simple answer is that as yet there are no Plug In cards available to allow you to add extra RAM when the existing slots are filled. The only adaptor card that I've ever seen allowed you to use the old 72 Pin RAM in lots of 4 sticks on the newer 168 pin sockets but even doing this caused a massive performance hit as the old RAM was much slower that the newer RAM and the system speed suffered. Currently there are no available RAM Extenders that I've ever seen for any of the current generation of RAM.
