Default Looking to buy another stick of memory

The current one I have is this:

DDR2
Module Size 1024 MBytes
Max Badwith PC2-4300 266 Mhz
Manufacturer Nanya Technology

So its nothing amazing, I don't even know if that manufacturer still exists anymore(I'm hoping to be able to run it in dual mode). But I would like to get another gig of ram and was wondering what you guys would suggest. I'm on something of a budget, so I'd like to know what is the cheapest thing I can get my hands on that would be worth my money, and also some that might be the next notch up, but nothing too expensive. Or just any other suggestions =p. <3

theres plenty of cheap ram out there thats 4300 check new egg out and if your comp isn't over clocked you don't need uber ram the cheap will work just fine!make sure you just match the size and speed up...if you do buy better ram it will get downclocked to the slowest one so it woulden't matter if you bought the good stuff or not!

Just goto www.crucial.com and it will scan your computer and recommend some RAM for you.
