Go here: Crucial.com. Click on "Scan My System". That will scan your system and tell you exactly what type, speed and quantity of memory you'll need.

What speed of ram does it take? What are the specs of the pc? If you don't know you can go to crucial.com and run the scan and it will tell you what kind of ram you need. Crucial is good ram BTW, you can buy that, Crucial Ballistix, Corsair XMS2.

Edit.....Atomic beat me to it.....

Those are great. But do they work on your motherboard?

Did you do as I suggested and go to the Crucial site to see what you needed?
