The RAM is delicate, so handle with care.
Locate the RAM slots on your motherboard. Check your manual to find out what slots should be used for the amount of RAM you're installing.
Press the RAM firmly into its slot and the latches on the sides will pop into place on their own.
Install other cards, like the video card pictured here, like the RAM.
Select the slot you want to install your card, then remove the metal plate on the back of the case.
Push the card down so that it fits snugly in the slot, remembering that the ports should exit the rear of the case. Also remember to secure the cards with the screw you removed.
Review the steps for installing RAM and cards.
