Hello raisis2k3 and welcome to BC.

Have a look at Kingston.com for some good info on Ram and system specific recommendations. You can also use the Crucial System Scanner which will tell you what memory is compatable with your system.

Newer motherboards are a lot more specific about what types of memory you can use so if you know what your motherboard is let us know and we'll help you figure out what is good for you. Also, all motherboards have maximum memory that you can install and your memory may also be limited by your operating system so let us know what that is too.
