I have an Asus K52F w/ an Intel Pentium P6200 which has an 8gb ram capacity & I currently have 4gb. It takes DDR3-800/1066 & I've read that I need to ensure I have the same type & speed. Can anyone confirm that what I've found in the link below is correct? If not, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I recommend going to Crucial and run their scanner.  It will recommend the correct RAM and let you know what you already have installed.

Thanks, man. I was under the impression I had 4 slots for memory but your advice helped me realize I only have 2. I cracked this SOB open to confirm. I was about to purchase what I already have installed. Appreciate the tip.

Adding RAM is often the most cost-effective upgrade you can make to speed up a sluggish computer. PCs that had more than enough RAM when they were new often have trouble keeping up with the demands of the latest programs after a few years. New operating systems almost always call for more memory, too. When a computer runs short of RAM, it's forced to swap the overflow data on and off of the hard drive, which can significantly slow performance. I can suggest IBRemarketing for this problem.
