If you go to http://crucial.com/ , it will tell you what kind of ram you have, and how many sticks/slots of ram your computer has. It will give you some options to buy from them, but I don't think they have very good prices. If you live in the united states, newegg.com has some of the best prices. Just remember the type of ram (if it's DDR or DDR2), and also what speed it runs at (example: 533mhz, 667mhz, 800mhz, etc.). If you need help, just post back this info, and we can help you find some compatible ram.

The Dell Dimension E520 is capable of running the RAM in dual channel which will effectively double the speed of the RAM. You will need to have matched modules for the best performance, at the least you need modules with the same specs.

You can use either 533mhz ram or 667mhz ram. I'd recommend just going with the 667mhz, because 667mhz ram and 533mhz are very closely priced if not the same. Any of these will work with your computer. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....+667+(PC2+5300) . One little thing I should mention is they have a couple that run at voltages above 1.8. You might want to stay with ram that is 1.8V. It's cheaper anyway, and works just as good for what you're doing. I'd also recommend getting 2X1gb stick so you can have 3gb. That is a good amount of ram, and that way as dc3 said, your ram will run in dual-channel.
