    My son's computer has an approximately 4 year old ECS motherboard with an
    AMD 1.2 Athlon chip, and running under XP Home. He's looking into a memory
    upgrade. He currently has 128MB PC 133 and was considering a 512 or more
    upgrade. I understand that possibly beyond a certain point, some older
    boards like his will not benefit or support more memory, maybe beyond 256MB.
    Any suggestions or recommendations?

    Crucial memory calculator.
    Put in m/b make & model, it will tell you the right type of RAM. More
    memory will improve performance, 128MB isn't really enough for XP.

    The Motherboard is an ECS (Elite Group) K7VZA.

    Here's the link to ECS.

    I don't find that exact board. So I will guess a bit based on my exp
    with ecs boards. I think you would like the performance increase with
    512 meg of DDR 2100 or 2700 ram. Before you spend the $60 or so for the
    ram you might wish to check out a newer board which will handle some
    future upgrades that WILL come up. I suggest a board that will handle an
    8x agp card, faster ram and a higher speed AMD chip, they are all pretty
    cheap when done one step at a time. There are some decent mboards out
    there for less than $75.
