    goto and use the system scanner, it'll tell you what your board can take. It'll also give you the type and price. Have a look about to see if you can get it cheaper

    Is it a branded PC ? ie . Dell , Acer or whatever , as sugested go to Crucial and feed in the make and model and read off the specs or use their scanner . You could however , take the side off the PC and take a memory stick out and write down the details ........for instance :1GB-PC4200-DDR2-533Mhz .Once you have the spec , pop across to Play.C-o-M , they normally have some goods deals on memmory . I've bought loads for PC's and laptops from them and have had no trouble with it .


    Crucial is wronh sometimes, much better to use cpu-z, anyway if it's ddr2 … Crucial is wronh sometimes, much better to use cpu-z, anyway if it's ddr2 it's a fair bit cheaper and the number is just the speed so any should do really.

    Never had problem with the crucial scanner tbh.
