Hello,

The question itself is quite explanatory. My current PC configuration consists of 256 MB RAM and I am planning to upgrade to 1 or 2 GB RAM. So how can I find the amount of RAM my motherboard supports? I know searching google with motherboard number would have helped but I dont know how to find out motherboard information under Xubuntu (and I dont want to log into windows to find this silly bit of information....). So tell me how to find my motherboard's information on Linux (I'm on Xubuntu).

Thanks in advance........
