Default Is this memory compatible with my computer?

I have 512 RAM DDR2 SDRAM (pc2-4200/pc2-4300/ 533 mhz) {info from my PC's diagnostic program}

I want to buy this not to replace my old RAM but just to add more

Will it work with my PC.

I don't know if my RAM slot is 184 pin. Is the only way to find out is to go in the PC and count?

no it wont work, and i would recommend getting memory from www.newegg.com. Alot cheaper and youll receive the memory a lot faster.

You cant fit 184pin into 240 pin and vice versa. That should be fine but ive never heard of the brand, and it would be easier if ya posted ya motherboard details like i said above
