I routinely recommend that anyone who's considering a change in system RAM use the Crucial System Scanner whether or not they intend to go with Crucial brand memory.
It has never steered me wrong as far as:
- what's currently installed in the computer, and in which slots
- the maximum number of slots, including empty ones
- the maximum amount of memory the system as a whole can accept
- showing that maximum divided among those slots
- giving accurate information regarding the type(s) of memory the system will accept
Mind you, if you "mix memory" the maximum speed is going to be that of your slowest module, as the system will compensate for that and the the modules capable of faster speeds will be slowed down to match the most restrictive speed.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
