I have decided to buy at least another 1G of RAM for my PC, preferably 2G. Though i have no idea what kind to buy or if it matters. I did a search in google and it seemed that there were many different types of RAM; one being SDRAM. If anyone could help me decide what kind of RAM to buy id be quite grateful

Specs:
Intel Pentium D Processor 820
Nvidia Geforce 9600
1024 MB DDR2
Windows Vista
E-Machines T5224

# 1.0 GB / 2.0 GB (max)
# Technology DDR2 SDRAM
# Memory speed 533.0 MHz
# Memory specification compliance PC2-4200
# RAM form factor DIMM 240-pin
# RAM features Two DDR channels

# RAM configuration features 2 x 512 MB
# Upgrade rule (RAM) Max 2 x 1 GB module

These are the specs. for your current memory. Match up the info. in bold and you should be fine.

Also be aware it appears you already have 2 sticks of 512. The only real way you will get a noticeable difference is to buy 2 1 Gig sticks since you only have two memory slots available.

I'm sorry but are you saying that my computer matches the bold info? Or that i need to check and make sure that it does.

According to the OEM site, those are the specs of your machine.

In bold is the information on the memory you need to shop for.
