I have a 7 year old Dell desktop pc running windows Home edition OEM sp2 and Windows IE7

Currently, there is 40GB hard drive and 256 ram. Certainly nothing to jump about with pc's nowadays. But, its still the one I use for my things. I want to buy inexpensive ram like maybe just another 256mb, but I know nothing about brands and types.

Do I just find out what my desktop currently has (brand and specs) and get only that type.
Or are they pretty generic? How do I find out what my pc has? Is the info in the device manager? Is there a program that can tell me whats in my pc by doing a scan?
Thanks in advance.

I prefer the scanning utility at crucial.com . Sometimes people have issues with the scanner though. If so, you can fill out the make and model of your computer yourself.
