I keep getting different answers about the maximum amount of RAM that can be installed in a HP Pavillion 553x Desktop tower.
I know it has two slots for ram but I find some results that say each slot will hold up to 1GB PC2100 (2GB Max) and some that say each slot will hold up to 512MB PC2100 (1GB Max).
I want to know exactly how much/maximum amount of memory can go into each slot before I order it.

I have the same model, Maximum RAM for the Pavillion 553x is 1gig
it has two slots for memory, total avail the pc can take is 1gig or ram.
Either buy two sticks of 512 that equals 1gig or buy a 1 stick of 1 gig.
I got mine from ebay
the drive I got also upgraded from the 40 gig to a 250 gig bought from ebay
I got the restore cd's from another place
grand total for was under 100.00 bucks and im loving it, fast and easy install
hopes this helps
