You need to know what type, and how much your motherboard supports. I like using the scanner through crucial.com, except I don't like to buy it through them. Newegg has a larger selection, and is cheaper, sometimes even if you buy the same stuff crucial tries to sell.

So, do a scan, and tell us your results. From there we can help you make a purchase decision.

First of all, what brand and model of motherboard or computer do you have? From there I can recommend some specific modules based on how much memory you want, how much you want to spend, weather or not you want to overclock, etc.

Assuming a 1gig stick, pick your PC2700 or PC3200. Nothing wrong with shopping by price since you won't be stressing/overclocking.

try going to corsair.com or kingston.com and using their memory finder. Then, copy and paste the model number into the Newegg search box and buy it from there.
